“Give your burdens to the Lord, and He will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.” -Psalm 55:22
Have you ever felt “weighed down” with burdens?
It seems that with the constant stressors and events of life, it has become normal to be weighed down with the things of life. Whether stressors are present because of money struggles, job pressures, family challenges, political issues, or current events, all of these things can take a toll on our souls. But, we can find rest in Jesus, as we “cast all our cares” on Him.
Jesus knew that we would often put burdens on ourselves that were too big to carry. After all, we are only human! He told His disciples, “For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matthew 11:29-30) Twice in the Bible is the phrase, “cast your cares on him” mentioned, in Psalms and in 1 Peter. God didn’t want the weight of the world on our shoulders; He wanted only the weight of His glory flowing through us for all the world to see.
If you are carrying heavy burdens, why not let them rest at His feet today? He desires that we let go of our burdens, so we can simply carry the “light burden”, and find “peace and rest for our souls.”
