Carrying Our Own Burdens
“Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee.” Psalm 55:22
There was a man carrying a heavy load of grain down a country road. Another man in a horse-drawn wagon saw him and said, “Mister, do you need a ride?” So the man walking got in the wagon, but he kept the load of grain on his shoulder.
The wagon driver said, “Man, put that down and relax!” But the man answered, “Oh no. It’s enough to ask you to carry me without having you carry this also.”
Have you ever done that to the Lord? You say, “Lord, I’ll let You save me, but I’ll carry my own burdens.” How foolish we are to do this with the God who hung the stars and planets.
If you can trust the Lord to save you from hell, don’t you think you can cast your burden upon Him right now?
