"Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved."
"Cast all your cares upon Him for He cares for you."
1st Peter 5:7
These are not recommendations from the Lord but instead are requirements that so often we find ourselves walking in disobedience to them.
It is like we're walking with Jesus, but then the enemy creeps up unbeknowst to us, and he puts more stuff in our bag. The weight is having a major impact on us, and Jesus turns and says give Him the weight so He can carry it for us, but we tell Him "no", and we continue to struggle although relief was offered.
What are we holding on to that God has said to give to Him?
God has promised that we will not be moved, and He will sustain us if we just give everything to Him.
"Oh, what peace we often forfeit, Oh what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer"!
May these verses bring you strength in this hour, Trust Him!
