Verse Of The Day: Cast your burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain you: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. Psalms 55 : 22
LISTEN: My dear, you cannot do it alone. The burdens of this life is too much and heavy to be borne alone. To think that you can bear the burdens of this life alone is to be limited in understanding. You need God to help you. Without his help, no human help can truly satisfy. When God shows up for you, no burden of this life can weigh you down. When he bears your burden for you, you will obtain relief and deliverance. What is above you is beneath God.
Beloved, why must you bear your burdens alone? Why must you allow what God can handle for you to destroy you by choosing to bear it alone, instead of casting them to him? When you carry a burden meant for the shoulder of God, you will be frustrated and die before getting to your destination. Never bear a burden that you cannot carry in life, when you have God the burden bearer. No doubt, a lot of people are bearing burdens that outweigh their strength. They wake up with tears in their eyes and sleep with same everyday. They pretend as though all is well, but down deep in their hearts they know that all is not well.
Beloved, all will be alright when you acknowledge the place of God in your life. You must realise that you are not the only person going through some difficult situations and moments in life, everyone of us partakes in it at one point or the other. But you must learn to have faith in God. He is the only one that knows and cares about us all. He wants to help you, but only when you put your hope and trust in him. (1 Peter 5 : 7). He knows your problems and understands where it hurts you, for he is a burden bearer who once hung on calvary tree.
Whatever your burdens are – finance, marriage, education, family background, ministry, health, etc., take them to God. Do not give the enemy a reason to rejoice over you. Put your trust in God and accept the invitation he extends to you today. (see Matt 11 : 28 , 29). Beloved, come to Jesus Christ and find rest for your soul. In Him you will learn how to overcome your challenges by the power of God through faith. King David said, ” Cast your burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain you: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.” (Psalms 55 : 22). Therefore, like David, let us put our trust in God, for surely he will sustain us. Remember, you cannot do it all alone.
