Cast your burden upon the LORD and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken. (Psalm 55:22 NASB)
We have a God who is loving and caring. The bible tells us that God loves the world (John 3:16), that He wishes for no one to perish (2 Peter 3:9), and that we love Him because He first loved us (1 John 4:19). If you are His, then He loves you and protects you. He will not leave you nor forsake you. In Him, you are saved, sealed, and set apart for His will and way.
What a wonderful truth this, one that should give you comfort! When you are burdened with pain, trials, or struggles, He sustains you. God the Holy Spirit provides a comfort and peace beyond any human understanding. While many in the world turn to many means of help, nothing can compare to the everlasting soothing of the waters of the Holy Spirit! Yes, you can cast your burdens upon Him- He is big enough, wise enough, and powerful enough to sustain you, and will never allow the righteous to be shaken!
