Do you have a burden in your life? Something that is a constant weight around your neck that you don’t seem to be able to get rid of. I think that we all have physical or spiritual burdens that are hard to bear from time to time. Things that seem to take the very strength from us. Many times, we bear the burden in silence. Maybe we don’t have anyone with which to share the burden with. Maybe, you think of just giving up because you don’t see any hope for the future.

If you are a child of God, this will never be your problem! There are so many bible verses that talk of the power of God’s love – encouraging promises to help us in time of need. I found a verse today that I hadn’t seen before that caught my attention. It’s in Psalm 55:22 (NLT)  

“Give your burdens to the Lord, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.”

When you are in trouble, do you cast your burden on the Lord? Or, do you try to solve the problem yourself. We have to realize that our Heavenly Father is reaching out to His children to offer His help. You don’t have to bear the burden alone! Not only will He take our problems onto Himself but He will give us the strength to overcome the obstacles in our lives. All we have to do is reach out to Him in faith and in trust. He will not let us slip or fall when we are going through trials.  

Child of God, don’t ever go through life thinking that there is no one to help you! All you have to do is talk to your Heavenly Father and tell Him what’s going on in your life. He knows but He wants you to talk to Him as your Father in heaven. He doesn’t want to see you faint or break down in anguish. You are His child and He loves you. Go to Him with every problem that you have and let Him show you the power of His love and His peace.
