Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
(1 Peter 5:6-7)
Today’s Morsel: In today’s world, so many things can burden us. Sickness, ill health, divorce, children, coworkers, employers, employees, leaders, and even death. These things can weigh us down and render us ineffective in the things that we need and want to do. When we have no joy or energy for what we must do, we can lose hope and go into a state of depression. Peter tells us to cast all of our cares upon the Lord because He cares for us. Therefore, we must take our burdens to Jesus and leave them there. The way you leave them there is when you rise from prayer at your personal altar, you purpose to not focus on those things that once burdened you. You now must follow Paul’s advice and, “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage” (Galatians 5:1). Allow Jesus to carry your burden, He is much stronger than you are.
Sing: Rolled away, rolled away, I am happy since my burdens rolled away; rolled away, rolled away, I am happy since my burdens rolled away.
Thought For Today: Jesus is the burden bearer.
