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 upon 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.
It’s 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.
“Lord, I pray for Faith in You. Amen?”

  1. Yes, I pray to the faith! And the belief that I am being guided in the right direction, that everything makes sense. But we have to act ourselves and since I am unique, only I can make a decision and can not draw comparisons. For the rest, I do not believe that I can only enjoy the presence of a person I know well. It is enough if I feel connected to this person.

    • Hi, Annie, I have been a bit tardy with comments. I must say I agree with you. After thinking about it more, God does put only one person in our path, but many. And it would be good to delight all, not just the one we know. Be Blessed.
