My brother, my sister, are you feeling overwhelmed by life’s burdens today? Let me reassure you: we have all been at that stage where it seems impossible to carry on, where you look at others, and they never seemed worried or disturbed in any way by the burdens of this life. Let me remind you that the Bible says: “Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.” Psalm 55:22.
The main problem is that we continue to carry our burdens ourselves, not trusting the Lord to keep to His word. We trust in men but not in God most of the time. Indeed, it is not always easy to release all to the Lord and to listen to Him. But as we release our burdens, trust in the Lord and walk in faith, God’s work is manifested in our lives.
Today pray as follows: Heavenly Father, I am overwhelmed by life’s burdens. My cross is heavy. Worry fills my mind and sadness consumes my heart. I feel heavy, drowning in my past, worrying about my present and anticipating my future. Be my strength Lord as you promised in Your Word that says’ “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1). When issues arise, allow me to lean on You and not focus on them. Today, I choose to release every burden, every stronghold, every issue and every situation unto You Lord. Help me for You are my Merciful Father. In Jesus name, I believe in my deliverance, my healing, my restoration. Amen!
