TEXT: PSALM 55:22
(22) Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
KEY VERSE: MATTHEW 11:28
Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
God wants His children to depend on Him for everything. When you are going through challenges in life, remember that the Lord is waiting for you to cast it upon Him. He is not only aware of what you are passing through, He shares it with you. He feels what we feel and HE is the one who cares for us. In today’s text, the Psalmist says “cast thy burden upon the LORD, and He shall sustain thee: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.”
God says to His children, “give Me every set of circumstance with which you feel unable to deal or handle.” The pressure upon you to “respond” to those circumstances immediately may be very great, but you must always make time (even if only for a moment) in which to give the situation, with its uncertainty or fear-potential, to God your heavy yoke.
As for me, I will call upon God; and the Lord shall save me. Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice. He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me. God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God. He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he hath broken his covenant. The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords. Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
My child, know that the simple way, or almost mechanical, giving of everything to Me ensures the divine activity in all that follows ME. You can then be conscious that all which develops is prompted by Me, and within My will for you. The most fleeting moment spent giving the situation into My hand is repaid many times over by the molding of events under My power and wisdom. Learn to hand over to me, and then patiently watch My oversight, and My intervention, in the development of that one in which you have surrendered to Me.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Give God every circumstance you feel unable to deal with.
SONG FOR THE DAY: I am handing over, (handing over 5x) everything to God.
BIBLE READING FOR TODAY: Ruth 1-4; Luke 11:29-54
