“Cast your burden on the LORD, And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.” Psalms 55:22 NKJV
There are things in this life which are beyond our control, but nothing is beyond God’s control.
I have a habit of giving my burdens to the Lord and then taking them back. Can anyone else relate? From the time we are children we are taught to be independent, to take care of ourselves, to handle our own problems.
That’s a good thing because it teaches us responsibility and self reliance. We can’t spend our whole life expecting other people to take care of us.
It’s also a bad thing because we are are constantly engaged in spiritual warfare. Satan will do everything in his power to steal, kill and destroy you. While God has equipped us with the full armor of God, He also promises to sustain us and give us the stability to stand, unmoved by circumstances, WHEN we give our burdens to Him.
Prayer: Father, thank You for Your faithfulness. Remind me when I am struggling with things beyond my control that I simply need to release them to You. I know I can trust You to sustain me.
