Cast your burden upon the Lord
Psalms 55:22 - Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
We are told by most that we need to cast our burden unto the lord we can expect all our problems to be solved.
The problem is not the scripture sometimes works and many times does not. The problem really is that we do not read the full scripture but only the part of it as per our liking and expect results. Most of the promises in the Bible have a condition and this scripture too has a condition. To have a fail proof result one needs to do the latter part of the scripture - be righteous.
None of us can be righteous, else we would have not needed Jesus Christ; and this the Lord knows. If you go into the grammar of the word it says - to make an attempt even if we can not be perfect. Only when we cast our burden unto the Lord and also take this path of righteousness, we are assured the promise. A promise from the Lord is even more real than the Demand Draft of a bank or hard cash in your hand. For there is chance of them failing but the Lord's promise WILL NOT.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, You are righteous and holy. It is by your righteousness that all things are set. It is only when we pursue your righteousness we identify ourselves as your children and as your children we inherit freedom from all our problems. I ask You Lord that You give me the courage to trust in You and to follow your path of righteousness. I ask this in Jesus' Name, Amen.
|The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
