Are you carrying or casting your burden?
Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee. Psalm 55:22
A man was carrying a heavy load of grain down a country road. Another man in a wagon being pulled by a horse saw him walking and said, “Mister, you need a ride?”
The man with the heavy load climbed onto the wagon and sat down. After a while, the driver looked back and saw his passenger was still holding onto the load. The driver said,
“My goodness, sir, set that load down and relax.”
“Oh, no,” said the rider. “It’s enough to ask you to give me a ride without your carrying this too.”
That’s ridiculous, isn’t it? But some of you have climbed into the wagon with Jesus for salvation, still holding onto the load. You’ve never set the load down, have you? You say, “Lord, I can trust You to save me, but I just can’t trust You to carry this load.” How foolish we are!
If you can trust God to save you from hell, don’t you think you can cast your burden upon the Lord right now? The Bible says, “Cast your burden upon the Lord. He will sustain thee” (Psalm 55:22). “Take your burdens to the Lord,” the old song says, “and leave them there.”
