The Burdens of Life

The burdens of life are like a heavy load on your shoulders. You carry it as far as you can, but sooner or later, it becomes too much for you. Your strength is depleted. You give up in a helpless situation. When you labor under a burden of worry and anxious care, there is help which comes from God. The LORD is there for you. He will sustain you through the difficult situations of life. "Give your burdens to the LORD, and he will take care of you" (Psalm 55:22, NLT). 

Give your burdens to the LORD in prayer. God is the LORD. That's God's covenant name. In the LORD's covenant word, he promises to help the believer trusting in him. In both the Old Covenant and the New Covenant, the LORD promises to take care of you. Believe the promise of God with sure confidence. He is there for you.

The burdens of life will come. You know what to do with them. Take your burden to the LORD. If you trust the sure covenant promise of the LORD, He will surely take care of you. Take your burden to the LORD through the prayer of faith. Base your faith on the everlasting promise of God.

What's your burden today? Take your burden to the LORD in prayer. He is sure to perform His word of promise in your life as a believer. Now, you can say, "The LORD is for me, so I will have no fear" (Psalm 118:6, NLT). God will help you with the burdens of life.
