Cast your burden on the Lord, and He will support you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.Psalm 55:22(HCSB)
The psalms of David, which were penned thousands of years ago, have as much relevance in today's anti-God, Christ-rejecting sinful world, as they did in the time of David's trouble.
David had been betrayed by one of his best friends, and his soul was in deep distress. He was restless and complaining, oppressed by wicked men, and distracted by a multitude of threats from his evil enemies. He was overwhelmed by trouble, broken-hearted with grief, anguished in heart, and in deep emotional distress.
Like many believers today, David was fearful of his growing number of enemies, overwhelmed by his many troubles, and sinking into a bottomless slough of despondency. Yet despite his overwhelming difficulties, David was enabled to turn his eyes on the Lord and cast his burdens upon Him. David knew that God would sustain him through every difficulty he faced, for God will never allow the righteous to be shaken.
Today, we too are increasingly overwhelmed by terrors and threats without, which cause many fears and fainting within, but throughout the Word of God we are reminded not to fear, for the Lord our God is with us, wherever we go. We are also encouraged to cast all our cares upon Him, for He cares for us.
Let us take this verse to heart, and cast all our cares on the Lord, knowing that if we do, He has promised to sustain us.
Heavenly Father, thank You that no matter what dangers and evils threaten me, and no matter what terrors and difficulties come near me, I may cast all my burdens upon You, knowing that You will sustain and strengthen me. I know that in Christ, I need never be shaken by terrors or threats. Praise God that greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
