Cast your burden on the LORD, And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved. Psalm 55:22 and 1 Peter 5:7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. Notice we have to take the first step and move toward the Lord and cast their cares upon the Lord. God invites us to cast all our cares upon Him because He cares for us. We bring our cares to Jesus, leave them with Him and He does the rest. We leave the cares in His presence by faith and we walk away freed from the pressures of life. What happens His peace comes flooding into our souls and He puts His ability into action. His power comes into play and He begins to solve the problems of life for us. The Lord has solutions that we never will think about.
Who in this world would love us enough that He would be willing to carry every burden we face in life. If every child of God across the planet cast His burdens to God He would take every single one of those burdens. But so many of us are not willing to cast our cares to the Lord and we try to solve the troubles of life ourselves. But there are some cares in life that we just don’t have the ability to solve.
God didn’t design us to carry the burdens of life but to cast them to Him so He can solve them and carry them across His divine shoulders. He wants us to rest in His supernatural care. Look at this verse Psalm 23:1 “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. We shall not be worried because we will have no wants because the Lord is our Shepherd.. He leads us to green pastures and quiet waters.
He meets all our needs all the time but if we are absorbed into ourselves with worry then God cannot do a thing for us. Faith pleases God not to worry because faith believes in God’s ability to produce for us. God wants us to believe that He will meet all of our needs. He said He would Philippians 4:19 “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” God has unlimited supplies to meet our many needs.
God cannot lie so if He says He will carry our cares He will carry our cares. He also cares about us. He loves us so much that He wants to take our burdens more than we want to give them to Him. We don’t need to sweat the hassles of life because God will carry the load for us. Psalm 68:19 “Blessed be the Lord, Who daily loads us with benefits, The God of our salvation!
God daily loads us with benefits and this includes taking all of our burdens and carrying them for us. Jesus said in Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
