Give the Lord your worries

“Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall.”

Psalms 55:22

You may be facing problems, they come in many varieties –work, financial, relationship, children, spiritual, health, and the list goes on.  Whatever they might be, they are not a surprise to God.  He knows what you’re going through.  God understands the pressures that you are under.  He is willing to help.  God does not want you to face your problems alone.  Why should you face them alone, when he is your Father, and he loves you deeply?

The Lord encourages us to cast our cares and worries on him and he will sustain us, he will never let us fall.  Sometimes we are falling under the strain of the burdens that we are carrying each day, therefore we feel overwhelmed.  Let us unload the burdens on our hearts to God in prayer.  Most importantly, let us tell him all the things that are on our mind.  All the things that concern us and keep us awake at nights, He is listening. He will not get bored or tired of hearing us talk, unlike our friends or family who may get tired, or feel overwhelmed listening to us after a while.

Then when we give him our problems, we need to allow him to carry them for us.  Sometimes we have a tendency to lay the problems on him for a while, then we pick them back up and carry them again.  We have to remember that God is stronger than us.  He is more than capable of carrying our problems all by himself, he does not need our assistance.  We are the ones who need his assistance.  Therefore, we can give him our problems and he can give us His sustaining power to cope with life each day.  

Be encouraged, he will sustain you.
