~Psalm 55:22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
There have been times that I have been at the end of my rope and felt that the only thing left to do was to give it to the Lord. When I stopped to think about it, that should have been the very first thing I should have done instead of waiting until I was so stressed. The Word tells us that when we cast our burdens upon the Lord, He will take care of us. Furthermore, he promises that we won’t be shaken by our circumstances. How wonderful to have this comfort and assurance in time of need!
You’ve been there, haven’t you? I’m sure I can’t be the only one – wondering why God allowed a certain plan to fall through when, in my eyes, it seemed perfect. However, in the end, we find out that His plan was much better! What a beautiful picture it is indeed – taking our cares and burdens and turning them over to the Lord because His shoulders were quite capable of taking the load.
Thank You, Lord, for taking them on!
