Psalm 55:22 (NLT)
“Give your burdens to the Lord, and He will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.”
In this time where many have been self-isolating, there has been a bigger need for people to be taken care of. There has been a dependency on other people’s kindness and care. So many have selflessly and sacrificially taken care of those who have fallen ill and needed treatment of any kind. And to different measures, we have all carried a burden together to see this virus pass.
Yet in this time, we have also seen that we cannot bear the burdens of this life on our own. And in many ways, our care is so limited. Yet there is One who is able – and willing – to carry each and every one of our burdens. He desires to care for us and will do so with a perfect care that “does not permit us to slip and fall”. What a promise in this time where everything else has shown itself fallible. God’s arm will never be too short to care for us when we reach out and give our burdens to Him.
Thank You, Heavenly Father, for Your unlimited care for me. You invite me to give You my burdens, because You care for me. You desire to be my strength and my sustainer, my courage and my care. I choose again today to put my trust in You and to give You my burdens, for You are able and You care for me. Holy Spirit, help me to let go of control and put things into Your capable hands. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
