Dear reader, are you a burdened soul today and finding it difficult to lift up your head and straighten up your back because of the heaviness of your heart? Today the Lord wants you to know that you do not have the capacity to carry your burdens and that they will cripple you physically, emotionally and spiritually. If you keep carrying these burdens, you will bend down and will not be able to lift up your head. You cannot walk forward with your head and back bent down. But your Lord doesn’t want you to bend down to your problems and failures, but to bend down to Jesus only in worship. There is no need to bend down in fear to the failures of life. If you cast all burdens on Jesus, He will release you from the heaviness that is on you. He will carry your burdens and solve your problems. He will straighten you up. Your impossible situations will be turned to great possibilities through His power. No matter how deep a pit you are in today, He will lift you up. It doesn’t matter how horrible your past failures have been because your Lord can turn your endeavors into success. If your failures and defeats have been because you have violated God’s principles, you will have the opportunity to confess it to Him. He will then wipe away all your sins of omissions and commissions and straighten out yourself and your pathways. So dear reader, take your burdens to the Lord and leave it all at the foot of the cross. Unburden yourself in His presence today and enjoy a life of freedom and joy.Psalms 55:22 – Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall. Thought for Today
When our Lord is ready, willing and capable of carrying our burdens, it is utterly meaningless for us to carry it ourselves.
