What Burden Weighs on Your Heart Today?
“Casting all your care upon Him; for He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
I read about a man whose dog was swimming. The man called to the dog because it was time to go home. The dog was having such a great time, he wouldn’t come. So the man picked up a stick and threw it in the water. When the dog saw the stick, he instinctively swam to the stick, put it in his mouth, came back, and laid it at his master’s feet.
I wonder if the burden you have has been given to you by God to cause you to come to His feet. Maybe He’s called you other ways, but you wouldn’t come. Maybe the burden is what God is using to bring you to your Master’s feet. But thank God we can cast all our cares upon Him, for He cares for us.
What burden weighs on your heart today? Did you know we have a high priest, the Lord Jesus, who, the Bible says, is not high and mighty or aloof, but one who relates to our sufferings and understands them?
Jesus Himself knew the greatest pain, suffering, and loss. Read Hebrews 4:15-16, then cast your cares upon Him today:
“For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
