If you’ve ever carried something very heavy, you probably remember the feeling of relief when you could put it down.
Not all burdens are physical. Emotional or spiritual burdens often feel heavier and more impossible than tangible ones.
No matter what form our challenges take, we must not forget that every circumstance in life is lovingly sifted through our Father’s fingers before reaching us. From the Lord’s perspective, those things that seem to be too much for us are opportunitiesfor us to learn dependence on Him.
God never intended that we shoulds carry a burden alone. Rather, He tells us to give it to Him and promises to see us through challenging times, no matter what. "Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken."
Casting your cares upon God means releasing them fully into His control and allowing Him to be your place of refuge from the storm we find ourselves in.
Let's take hold of David's words at the end of Psalm 55: "But as for me, I trust in you."
