“Give your burdens to the LORD, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.” Psalms 55:22 NLT
Is there something that you are carrying today that you need to give to the Lord? Why is it so hard to do?
It really comes down to a matter of trust. Do you trust the Lord enough to let it go...to let Him handle things in His way and in His timing?
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5 NLT
There is a promise made to those who are willing to give their burdens to the Lord...to those who are godly. The promise is that He will take care of you.
Sounds pretty good to me, but what about being godly? How do you live a godly life?
The key to godliness is not found in our own strength and power, but “by his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.” 2 Peter 1:3 NLT
It once again comes down to a matter of trust. Trust in His power that is already in you through Jesus Christ...power to live a godly life...strength to carry your burdens.
He can be trusted.
