January 18 ~ BURDEN ~ Click Here to Select a Different Day

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved” (Ps. 55:22). The believer should not struggle along, trying to carry burdens too great for him. The Lord is ready to sustain him. The Lord Jesus invites believers to come to Him and take up His burden. He promises, “Ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matt. 11:29–30). His grace enables us to lift His burdens. The apostle Paul urges believers, “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ” (Gal. 6:2). If fellow believers have heavier burdens than they can carry, believers ought to be prepared to help them lift such burdens. But believers are not supposed to do other peoples’ work for them. “For every man shall bear his own burden” (Gal. 6:5).
