Cast your burden on the Lord…

Standard

Sisyphean toil

Psalm 55:22 Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you…

Psalm 55 is mostly about betrayal by a close friend, which is a painful thing to have happen. But when a betrayal of this sort comes on top of other problems or struggles, the burden can be crushing. It’s too much. Here the psalmist offers solid advice.

“Cast your burden on the Lord…”

The Lord’s shoulders are big. He can handle anything that comes our way even when we can’t. So this morning I’m praying to the Lord about the burdens I’m carrying right now. So often I try to soldier on and take care of things myself instead of praying for the Lord to carry the burden for me. All I have to do is ask. So Lord, I’m asking. Amen.
