"Cast Thy Burden Upon The Lord"
"Cast Thy Burden Upon The Lord'
When the bible speaks on casting our burden upon the Lord, it's telling us to put all our cares upon God, including unnecessary worry, problems, sins, transgressions and stumbling blocks and he will sustain us. He ask us for our burdens, because he doesn't want us to suffer alone. what a good God mankind has been blessed with. He's such a caring and faithful God, how can we not love a God of such impeccable love and true character. When we cast our burden upon the Lord, Our actions of faith is telling the world and everyone else that we have enough faith to trust God with all the matters of our lives. God delivers us out of all our troubles. The bible tells us of our trials and tribulations, that we must go through, but it also tells us that we're not alone; that God is with us always,even if we don't feel his presence. Job was a man that hated evil and God loved him just for that reason, but to prove a point to Satan, God let Satan use Job and his possessions.
God let Satan use Job to show Satan that Job wouldn't turn from God or curse him, even though he felt like God had left his presence. Job went through hell and back again, he curse the day he was born, and everything about his life, but he never curse God. Job went Through all his trials and tribulations, thinking That he had did something terrible, because he thought God had left his presence. There are 42 chapter of Job, and Job toiled with his burdens and depression all the way through to the 37 Chapter of Job, thinking that God had abandon him. But God started back talking to in in the 37 chapter, Can you even imagine how painful it was for Job, to think that even God had wash his hands of him. When God started back communicating with Job, can you imagine how good it felt to know God hadn't left him, and that he hadn't did anything that was so terrible. God have given back to Job, everything he lost and more than he had before. If we look at Job's story, it tells us not to give up on God; or never stop praying or having faith that God is with us and working out our problem, even though we might not feel his presence, it doesn't means that he's not there with us.
The children of God have to pray and cast their burdens or troubles up on the Lord and believe in him and have enough faith that whatever you're going through, that even this shall pass. if you truly know God the father then you also, know, he loves his children and want the best for us. We all have trials that we have to go through, but how we handle them makes us better children of God. So, hold firm to your faith and don't let Satan dampen your spirit, because God will take care of us , if we let him. When you see the enemy coming we have to rebuke them in the mighty name of Jesus Christ and they will flee from our presence, because of our strong convictions against them, they cannot stay.
