The Lord not only wants to carry your burdens, He wants to help you unpack the weight of regrets, guilt, unforgiveness, bitterness, and brokenness. Let us lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily ensnares us. (Hebrews 12:1-2)
God carries our sins. His sacrificial love secures the freedom and joy we experience in trusting Him. He himself bore our sins in His body on the cross. (1 Peter 2:24)
God carries our anxieties and worries. How many of us endure sleepless nights carrying burdens? These could include decisions, afflictions, relationships, fears, lack and so many more! These emotions are too heavy for us to carry alone. We have help and hope from our Savior who tells us to Cast all our anxiety on Him, because He cares for us. (1 Peter 5:7)
God carries the cause of justice for us. We all have experienced unfairness. At times, the ungodly actions of others impact us negatively. How can we not be embittered by the injustice in the world? The only answer is to let God carry your cause and settle accounts for you. Vengeance is mine, I will repay (Romans 12:19)
God carries each one of us throughout our lives. God formed you in your mother’s womb and He will carry you all of your days. Here’s proof: Listen to Me, O house of Jacob, And all the remnant of the house of Israel, Who have been upheld by Me from birth, Who have been carried from the womb: Even to your old age, I am He, And even to gray hairs I will carry you! I have made, and I will bear; Even I will carry, and will deliver you. (Isaiah 46:3-4)
Prayer: Lord there are situations in our life where we become heavy laden. Help us to come to you and find rest for our souls.
