Give your burdens to the LORD, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall. (Psalms 55:22 NLT)
God wants us to give our burdens to him, but often we continue to bear them ourselves even when we say we are trusting in him. Trust the same strength that sustains you to carry your cares also.
Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart’s desires. Commit everything you do to the LORD. Trust him, and he will help you. (Psalms 37:4-5 NLT)
David calls us to take delight in the Lord and to commit everything we have and do to him. But how do we do this? To delight in someone means to experience great pleasure and joy in his or her presence. This happens only when we know that person well. Thus, to delight in the Lord, we must know him better. Knowledge of God’s great love for us will indeed give us delight.
To – commit ourselves to the Lord means entrusting everything—our lives, families, jobs, possessions—to his control and guidance. To commit ourselves to the Lord means to trust in him (37:5), believing that he can care for us better than we can ourselves. We should be willing to wait patiently (37:7) for him to work out what is best for us. (Tyndale Study Bible)
Don’t we all struggle with this. Yesterday we were to ask God in prayer. Then rely and wait patiently.
Like the writer comments do we fully trust in God. We continue to bear some of those burdens ourselves. What are we to do? Trust and rely on God all the time, be faithful. I often find myself failing in this area.
Its like God is good for the easy things but we question and think we can do it when it’s though. It’s not about us. We should focus and rely on God.
Commit everything to HIM.
