Where To Put Your Troubles
Thanks To Bible Study Planet
“Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you. He will never let the righteous fall.” (Psalm 55:22)
Put your troubles where you have put your sins. You have put your sins onto Jesus — put your troubles there also!
As soon as the trouble comes tell it to your Father in heaven! Remember, the longer you take telling your trouble to God, the longer you will wait for peace. The longer the frost lasts, the more likely the ponds will be frozen. “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
Putting your burden upon the Lord is the way to soothe sorrow. Oh, troubled Christians, don’t dishonor your faith by always wearing a frown of concern. Come, put your burden upon the Lord. “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7)
I see you staggering beneath a weight that He would not feel. What seems to you a crushing burden would be nothing but a bit of dust to Him. The Almighty bends His shoulders, and He says to you, “Put your troubles here!”
