Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved. -(Psalm 55:22 NKJV)
Jesus came to carry our burdens. But so many times we try to carry them alone and, in doing so, we absolutely break ourselves mentally, emotionally, and physically.
When one of my close relatives died, I saw his wife carrying the grief and sorrow. I could see that it was physically robbing her health. She was a born-again believer, so I called her one day and asked her if Jesus had carried her sins. She said, “Yes, He has. You know that He has, because I’m a born-again believer.”
I said, “But you are still carrying your griefs and sorrows. Jesus not only carried your sins and sicknesses, He also carried your griefs and sorrows.”
When my relative heard and received this message from God’s Word, it was as though a great burden had been lifted from her shoulders. The light from the Word had penetrated the darkness of her grief. That very day she cast her grief and sorrow on the Lord and was set free.
Jesus, I declare that this day I will cast my burdens on You. Help me see that You know how to provide for that which is committed into Your hands. Amen.
