Cast your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.
Life Brings Burdens
Whatever life brings your way, you can give it to the Lord, knowing He will take care of you.
Sometimes, you just never know what life brings you. In these uncertain and trying times, God gives you a promise of hope. When you trust Him, He will strengthen you and keep you secure.
This promise is repeated in 1 Peter 5:7. When God repeats Himself, you had better pay close attention. When a promise shows up in the Old and New Testaments, you can be sure God doesn’t want you to miss it.
The word “burden” in this promise means your lot in life or what life has brought to you. Sometimes, you take on burdens, and sometimes, burdens are thrust upon you. You didn’t deserve them or even see them coming, but here they are.
Cast Your Burdens
I love how God says, “Cast your burden.” It’s the picture of taking off a heavy backpack and throwing it to someone else to carry.
Instead of carrying all your worry, fear, and uncertainty, you can throw them over to the Lord. When you cast your burden on the Lord, it is a confession of faith and trust in Him. You are saying, “God, I trust you. I know you love me and will take care of me.” God always upholds those who place their trust in Him.
Safe and Secure
This promise says He will not let you be shaken. He will be your solid rock. He will strengthen you through the storms and uncertainties of life, keeping you safe and secure.
Hebrews 13:5 says that God will never leave or forsake you. You don’t have to carry your burdens alone. God is with you right now, by your side, encouraging and sustaining you.
What you are facing today may not change tomorrow, but God gives you hope, courage, and determination to make it through what life brings.
Every day, you have a choice: you can carry your burdens or throw them into the Lord’s hands.
Look at that promise again.
Cast your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken. – Psalm 55:22
Make these confessions
Right now, I throw all my burdens on the Lord.
I confess Jesus is my security, strength, and comfort.
He will never leave me or forsake me.
He will keep me on solid ground no matter what life brings.
In Jesus’ name,
