“Release and He Will Sustain”

cast your burden on the Lord

by Dona Hake

Psalm 55:22 (AMP)

“Cast your burden on the Lord [releasing the weight of it]

and He will sustain you; He will never allow the

[consistently] righteous to be moved

(made to slip, fall, or fail).”

Release and He promises to sustain.  If we choose to hold on to our cares and burdens, how shall He help us?    How shall He bless us with the answers that we need if we choose to try to figure out our problems on our own?  Our human nature will try  to tempt us to think that we are able to do things in our own ability yet once we experience His strength and provision that we need, it exposes how we need Him desperately.   Remember…He wants to be in every detail of your life, no matter how big or small.

Today I want to encourage your heart to take anything that is a weight to you and just surrender it to Him.  He promises He will sustain you which means that He will support, hold, or bear up from below.  He will bear the weight of whatever you are trying to manage yourself.  No matter how big or how small, take it to Him in prayer!  Corrie ten Boom said it beautifully:

“Any concern too small to be turned into a prayer
is to small to be made into a burden.”
