God Wants Your Burdens

“Yet man is born to trouble, as the sparks fly upward”

Job 5:7

Ponder This

It starts almost the day we’re born. We come in crying, and from there it just goes on. We have burdens. If you don’t have burdens, you’re probably not a thinking person. But I want to tell you today what to do with your burdens.

David wrote, “Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you. He shall never permit the righteous to be moved” (Psalm 55:22).

David was a king. He was wealthy and powerful. What do we learn from this? That burdens come to the high as well as to the low. They come to saints as well as sinners. They come to the old as well as the young. What do we do with our burdens? We have to cast them upon the Lord.

Practice This

Do you have a broken heart? Has one of your children ripped your heart out? Is there a husband who has forsaken you? A physical malady gnawing away at your body? Is there a problem perplexing you? Cast your burden on the Lord. He will sustain you.
