Throw your burden upon the Lord,
and he will sustain you. He will never allow the godly to be upended.
Psalms 55:22 NET
The Psalmist says to throw your burdens on the Lord. Does that seem irreverent?
Throw, not set, not gently arrange. The image is of someone tossing away something.
And when you throw your burdens, God will sustain you.
The problem is that we always feel that we can handle things better than God. We feel that we know our situation better than the One who created life!
But He knows us better than we know ourselves. He is mightier, stronger, wiser than us.
He will never let the godly down! And the godly can trust Him, because He is God!
What are you holding on to that is a burden? What are you holding on to that is too much? It’s time to throw it to God and let Him take care of it!
It’s time to trust God. You’ve struggled trying on your own. Now you need to trust Him!
Experience His love and mercy. Experience the peace that He gives to His children. It’s time to let go and let God take it!
He will not let you down!
Father, thank You that I can fully trust You in everything and with even my very life. Take the burdens that I try to manage and give me peace instead.
