“Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you.”

Psalm 55:22

We live in a world of burden bearing, sorrow and trouble; these are not respecters of persons. The rich have their share of trouble as well as the poor, Job 14:1 “Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.” Some have to carry heavier burdens than others, some seem handicapped and frustrated at every turn of the road and some have little conception of the hidden burdens that others are carrying. Many breaking heart is hidden by a smiling face, often the deepest and the heaviest burdens that men and women carry are those not seen with the naked eye.

In the midst of your burden, learn not to grumble trust God; don’t doubt Him and do not despair because none of these can lift your burden rather take your burden to the Lord.

Let the Lord carry the burden for you since the burden is too heavy for you, give it to the Lord to carry. The Bible teaches that the Lord is the great Burden-bearer, Isaiah 53:4 “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows:” and Peter re-echoed it in 1 Pet. 5:7 “Casting all your care upon him; for He cares…”

Leave it with Him, once we have cast our burdens upon the Lord, He assumes full responsibility for the burdens for us, and He promises to sustain and uphold us.
