Surrendering every burden


BIBLE MEDITATION:

“Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.” Psalm 37:5

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

Many say they’ve committed their lives to the Lord, but have they really? The psalmist challenges us to commit our way to the Lord.

The word “commit” in this passage has the idea of rolling a burden over to the Lord.

An old hymn written long ago is titled “I Remember When My Burdens Rolled Away.” The first verse says,

“I remember when my burdens rolled away;

I had carried them for years, night and day.

When I sought the blessed Lord,

And I took Him at His word,

Then at once all my burdens rolled away.”

Have a commitment that rolls burdens on the Lord. He will take care of you. He will vindicate you. He will answer you.

ACTION POINT:

Take comfort in Psalm 55:22—“Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.” Once again roll your burdens over to the Lord. Surrender everything to Him.
