Psalm 55:22 – Cast your burden on the LORD, And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.
The psalmist came to realize that the best course in time of troubles is not to run away from trouble, but to cast the burden of them on the Lord. My Christian brother or sister, let me boldly say to you, “Turn your troubles and those who appose you over to God.” Turn over anyone who would betray you to the Lord. As a pastor and as a Christian, I have found that the Lord does a better job in dealing with my enemies than I can. He knows best how to handle them. Cast your burden upon the Lord and He will take care of everything.
Why do we hold onto the things that God can take care of for us? Do we actually think we can do a better job than the Lord can? God wants you hand over EVERYTHING in your life that is causing you pain and holding you back. What situation is there in your life right now that is weighing you down? Which of your relationships is giving you the most trouble at the moment? One reason these things are troubling you most is because you are holding onto them and not giving them to God. Your challenge this week is to CAST! Cast those things that are hurting your heart, hindering your walk or holding you back. Stop dwelling on them and when you find yourself stressing over them, once again, CAST them over to the Lord. Get in the habit of giving God your life. Over time you will find yourself burden free. God bless you and keep you.
