A large bridge needs many strong cables and cords to sustain it in the air. These cables help bear the weight of all who cross it. The cables don’t remove the weight that bridge must hold, they only offer enough support that the bridge is not damaged or weakened.
How many times do we get angry because God won’t remove uncomfortable or difficult situations from our lives? Scripture tells us that God wants us to cast our burdens upon Him so He can sustain us. To sustain means to provide what is needed to survive and to help bear the weight.
Have a problem in your life that’s too heavy to bear? Cast it upon the Lord! He will stretch out His loving arms and support you through your difficult time, providing strength to get you through!
“Cast thy burden upon the Lord , and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.” – Psalms 55:22
