"Cast your burden on the LORD, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved." Psalm 55:22
We all have a burden of some kind, and we tend to try and carry these by ourselves.
In our verse, David, the Psalmist, offers another option - cast the burden on God.
The word "cast" means to throw down. Have you been on a hike, carrying a heavy backpack? If so, you may remember arriving at a rest area and removing the pack to rest. It feels so good to not have the pack on your back - you almost float! This is how it feels when we give God our burdens.
The Psalmist had learned by experience to give God his burdens - the things that troubled his mind - and we should do the same. The verse implies that God will do the carrying, and the promise is that God will sustain us (give us strength to cope), after we give Him our burden. It goes on to say God will never permit the righteous to be moved. In other words, as you place your confidence in Him, you will not be washed away in the flood of life's troubles, but will journey in His strength.
If you are weary from carrying a burden, give it to Jesus today. He's your traveling Companion; He's the burden-Bearer.
