Leaving Our Burdens

Psalms 55:22 22 Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. (NIV)

I used to kneel at the alter in church and “cast my burdens upon the Lord.”  Then, when I left church I would devise how I had to do things to make sure my prayers were answered.  What I was doing was picking my burdens back up because I didn’t really believe God would answer my prayers.  Sometimes it’s not because we don’t believe but because we are impatient and don’t want to wait on God’s timing or God’s way of answering.  Whenever we are anxious or worried we are showing we have picked up our burdens rather than trusting God to take them and give us the answers to them.  It’s not saying we have nothing to do with the answering.  It’s saying God has the answers and will give them to us in the right time and the right way.  Let us learn to lay our burdens before the throne of God and give Him the time He wants to bring us the answers.  God has promised to meet all our needs.  He is faithful in His time and His way.  Let us leave our burdens with Him and open our hearts, minds and ears to hear Him as He speaks to us.
