Cast your burdens to God

There are times when the burdens of life are so heavy, so difficult, and so onerous that I feel like I might suffocate. The burden is overwhelming. I don't know if I will survive. All I can do is cry out to God in desperation. This promise in Psalm 55 has been a source of unending strength and encouragement over the years; for problems of all kinds, big and small, I have gone to this passage. How many times have I gone over this verse before the Lord?

"Cast your burden on the Lord." Here it is, Lord. You take it. I cannot carry it. It's too big for me.

"And he will sustain you." Yes, Lord, you will hold me up. You alone. Without you, I'm sunk.

"He will never permit the righteous to be moved." Lord, I have no righteousness of my own. But by your grace, I am righteous in Jesus. By your grace, you have made me righteous and right with you. I am one of your holy people and I want to live for you. This promise is for me, Lord, and what a promise it is. You will hold me tight, you will hold me up, and you will hold me steady.

Do you have a burden? When burdens come, don't carry them. Cast them upon the Lord. Let God carry your burdens. This is a promise to memorize. This is a promise to claim. This is a promise to cling to.
