Psalm 55:22 – Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
Are you burdened? Do you carry a weight? Perhaps you worry because of failing health or job concerns. Or maybe you have a sin in your life that you feel you cannot give up. Jesus says to you, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28).
It is easy to succumb to feelings of despair and worry. We often feel powerless. Such feelings are natural because frankly many burdens are too great for us alone, but we are not alone. This is why God tells us to cast our burdens upon Him. He cares for the sparrows. Are you not more to Him than a sparrow? (Matthew 10:29-31).
Trials and tribulations may come our way, but faith gives us victory today even in the midst of difficulty. “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” (1 John 5:4). Keep your eyes focused on the Redeemer and you too will rest in the knowledge that He rules and all things are within His Almighty grasp. His arm is not shortened that is cannot save (Isaiah 59:1-2). Let us repent and confess the name of Jesus and cling to Him, our Savior, every day!
