Encouragement Nugget - Give It All To God!
Chosen by God!
“Cast your burden on the Lord [releasing the weight of it] and He will sustain you; He will never allow the [consistently] righteous to be moved (made to slip, fall, or fail).” (Psalm 55:22 AMPC)
Cast, let it go, throw it away. Whatever is burdening you can be cast away, given to God. You don’t have to carry it. You can give it to God. Release the weight of it and God will sustain you through the challenges, while providing solutions. He will not allow the righteous to be moved.
The weight of burdens can cause us to go off course, move us in the wrong direction. When you give the burden to God He will carry it because it’s not a burden to Him. When He carry’s it we can stay on course, moving in the right direction.
We do not have to carry any burden or face any challenge alone. What peace we can walk in not having to wonder how any situation would be resolved. When we give it to God the burden becomes His to resolve. In the casting trust is needed. We have to believe that God loves us, which He does, (“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn you and continued My faithfulness to you.” Jeremiah 31:3b AMPC). We have to believe that this will work out for our good, which it will. (“We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.” Romans 8:28 AMPC)
I have to wonder why we don’t take advantage of this casting privilege more fully and much sooner. To be free of the weight of the burden is priceless. To know that God can, and will, handle the burden is also priceless.
God’s Word covers every situation we could ever face and He promises that when we cast our burden, releasing the weight of it on Him, He will sustain us. Reality check – We cannot sustain ourselves no matter how hard we might try. We fall short because we were created to be sustained by Him. Our resources are limited, His are not. There is security in being sustained by God. We will not be moved, made to slip, fall or fail. We can’t fail because God is on our side. This is some powerful stuff right here.
