Psalm 55:22 “Cast your burden on the Lord, and he shall sustain you.” (NKJV)
Father – My burdens – health, job, family, friends, enemies, the past, whatever they might be – are to be cast on you. To cast is to throw out, to release, or let go of. My burden is to be given to you, for only you can carry it, handle it, or even begin to “fix” it.
Is this a command, Lord? Am I in disobedience when I hold onto things, people or situations that are burdens rather than passing them off to you? Isn’t that taking the easy way out? Won’t it look like I don’t care about the “situation” if I don’t continually try to “help” solve it?
My Child – How can you enter into My rest when you try to take over My role in your life? I am the burden bearer. I know both the beginning and the end. Only I can truly handle the situation in a way that furthers My kingdom.
Stop getting in My way. You can actually be an impediment to the best resolution by trying to “do it” yourself. Let go and let Me work. Trust Me to love you and the people involved. I have the best way. After you have truly given Me your burden, your “job” is to relax.
Don’t try to take it back. You only prolong the problem when you do. Let Me free you. You are to look to Me, not yourself, for the solution. Check your focus, child. Is it Me or you? Remember, Father knows best!
Love you, Abba
