JESUS KEEPS US!
"Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved" Psalm 55:22
IN JESUS TODAY!
Come unto me Jesus says, Mathew 11:28 and in Mathew 11:30 he tells us,
"His burden is light and he will give you rest."
The burdens of our time seem to be more like boulders and are weighing heavily on the hearts of many. But what can we do? We can make all the excuses we want and tell as many that we like, it's the economy, our leaders, our battles with terrorism, our fight to retain our jobs, to keep our homes, and much more. These are no longer other people's problems, but have now hit the homes of almost everyone. They are no longer simple life events or needs, they now have grown into major concerns for EVERYONE.
THE CARES OF THIS WORLD…
Whether you will call them burdens or boulders these cares are not meant to be our heritage. God has brought us out from this, Exodus 6:6, 7
"Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians."
Some of these boulders or burdens are not something that we can move on our own in our own strength, being way too heavy for us, but as it was for Lazarus, Jesus wants to roll away these stones. He desires that these burdens are removed from us as he commanded,
Jesus said, "Take ye away the stone." John 11:39
He does this so that we can move freely when he calls us,
"Lazarus come forth!" John 11:43
Jesus knows all too well that it is difficult to be free when heavy cares are laid upon us, for this reason he calls us unto himself and commands us that we give it all to him.
If we continue to hold onto these burdens and are not willing to let go and give them to God, the only one that is able, it will affect us mentally, physically, and most of all spiritually. Give your burdens to Jesus, he loves you and cares about all that you are going through.
LET GO OF YOUR WORRIES, AND THE CARES OF THIS WORLD AND GIVE THEM TO JESUS!
