Are you feeling weighted down by what is on your schedule for today? Why not take your heavy burden filled with the cares and expectations of today, and exchange it for God’s lighter burden of love, joy, and peace? When you drop to your knees and give your day to the Lord, you are emptying your sack of all the burdens of today. Reading His Word fills your sack with God’s precious promises!
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28-30
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
