A Burden-bearing God!

burden bearing“Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior,
who daily bears our burdens” (Psalm 68:19).

How wonderful it is to know that our God is a burden-bearing God.
What is the burden you are carrying today? By prayer, you can cast it upon the Lord who promises to sustain you (Psalm 55:22).

Jesus invites those with burdens to come in faith to Him: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls”(Matthew 11:28-29)

May you experience today the gentle and humble heart of our Lord Jesus Christ! He is the only one who can bear your burden. He not only promises to carry our burdens, but, even more importantly, He also promises to carry us. He is the Shepherd who carries the lambs in his arms close to his heart (Isaiah 40:11).

Scott Wesley Brown reminded us of this years ago with his gospel song: “He Will Carry You.”

“There is no problem too big, God cannot solve it.
There is no mountain too tall, He cannot move it.
There is no storm too dark, God cannot calm it.
There is no sorrow too deep, God cannot soothe it.

If He carried the weight of the world
upon His shoulders
I know my brother, that He will carry you
If He carried the weight of the world
upon His shoulders
I know, my sister, that He will carry you.”
