"Blessed be the Lord, Who bears our burdens and carries us day by day, even the God Who is our salvation! Selah [pause and calmly think of that]!
God is to us a God of deliverances and salvation; and to God the Lord belongs escape from death [setting us free]. " Psalms 68:19-20
Are you carrying a heavy load today? Is there a weight pulling you down? You were never meant to carry the encumbrance.
Our Lord bears our burdens. He not only carries our cares, He also carries us day by day.
There are many applications to these verses.
Is your burden a worry?
Are you weary?
Are you weighed down with the heaviness of guilt from a past sin (or present)?
Has someone wronged you and cumbersome unforgiveness is holding you in bondage?
Do you feel that the weight of the trials of life are just too much to bear?
When life seems too heavy and you are barely pulling through, He picks you up and takes you to a place of rest. When you feel stuck in the mud and muck of the mundane, He reaches out and carries you to the security of solid rock.
God is a God a deliverances. Let Him deliver you. Whatever describes your load, give it to Him today.
If it is a bondage that is wearing you down, He will give you the escape route. There might be some hills and valleys in the route. It may involve some climbing to get out of the pit, but God will lead you every step of the way. He knows the way of escape and He will carry you if need be to get you to the place of freedom. Just ask Him.
He will set you free.
"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
"Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you." 1 Peter 5:7
