Cast Your Burden Upon the Lord – Psalm 55:22

Cast your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain you;
He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.

Reflection

In this life, we will encounter many burdens. The reason is twofold: We live in a fallen world and we have many responsibilities. Demanding work schedules, sick children, aging parents, an unexpected health crisis or maybe loss of income. Whatever the case is, cares and anxieties are real. Thankfully, we can take comfort knowing that Jesus came into the world so that we could have life — and have it more abundantly (Jn 10:10). This means that despite any and all burdens, with Christ, we can have total peace and joy.

The psalmist affirms that we are to cast all our cares upon the Lord. This requires trust — a complete abandonment of our will for His; the ability to proclaim “Jesus, I trust in You” with childlike faith in the face of any obstacle. While it may seem nerve wracking at first, this kind of trust is liberating. It provides freedom from the bondage of fear and crippling anxiety. What’s more? It is what divine miracles and holy Saints are made from. This kind of trust has proven to be richly rewarding both here on earth and in Heaven.

So if you are feeling weighted down by the heavy burdens of life today, carry it all to the foot of the Cross. Trust God to take care of it. He knows what you are going through and wants to help … but He also wants to see your faith in action. This is an opportunity to not only strengthen your faith, but to allow God to show His strength through you. So fear not! The Lord will sustain you. From the beginning of time He has promised that “the righteous will not be shaken.” Rest assured that with Him, you will not be overcome; through Him, miracles abound.

Prayer

Jesus, thank You for allowing us to cast our burdens upon You. As we bring our daily worries to the foot of the Cross, we trust You to take care of everything. Please forgive us when we try to control the circumstances of our lives in our own strength instead of relying on Yours. You have promised that in Your power, the righteous will not be shaken. Therefore, we pray for the grace of holiness in Your sight. Increase our faith, Lord, and give us the courage to endure any challenge You deem worthy. It is in Your good and holy Name we pray, Amen.

“Cast your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken”Psalm 55:22.
