Cast your burdens on Him

Imagine this:  Once, a man was going on a journey. He carried a backpack on his back. While he walked the backpack kept getting heavier and heavier.  He kept saying “I can do it! It’s not too heavy for me. ” But, it kept getting heavier and heavier. Finally, he comes upon a cross. He decides to lay his backpack down at the cross. He is now free, no more load on his back! He dropped his backpack, his load, off at Calvary. ~Pilgrims Progress

God will let us go through things. But, he is always right there to help us when we fall.

Think of a little toddler, she wants to pick up a big rock. Her daddy comes along and says “Let me help you sweetie”, and she says “I can do it!” She picks up the rock and walks a few inches, the rock being to heavy on her. Her daddy is still walking beside her. She eventually falls down, and lets the rock go. Her dad picks her up, and also picks up the rock  for her. The little girl is us, we think we can carry our burdens, but, we need help. The daddy is God. He didn’t force the girl to let me carry it. He walked right beside her, and she chose to not let him take it for her, so she fell. The dad was right there to pick her up and carry it for her.

God is a gentle men. He won’t say “LET ME TAKE THAT NOW FOR YOU!” You have to ask him too.

Give yours burdens to Jesus before you fall. God is just waiting for you to give him your burdens. He won’t snatch them from you, you have to give them to him.

Think of a girl who is walking home from school. She is carrying her books. A boy comes up and says “I’ll take your books for you”, and he snatches them from her. The girl didn’t even ask for him to take them! God is not like that at all! He is like this:

A girl is walking home from school. A boy comes up, and starts walking beside her. He kindly asks to take her books for her, the girl replies “Sure, thank you”. He gladly takes them. God is a gentlemen.

God won’t automatically take your cares away, without you asking him. You MUST ASK HIM TOO. You have to ask him, to take them away, and he will. God is whispering “I can help you, I’ll take your burdens away.” But, some people think that they can do it by themselves.

Ask him before you fall. He will pick you up, but, you want to give your backpack to Jesus, before you fall from it’s heaviness.

Psalm 55:22 Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Psalm 62:8 Trust in him at all times; [ye] people, pour out your heart before him: God [is] a refuge for us. Selah.

Jesus loves you! He loves you enough to take your burdens away from you. But, he wants to see that you have faith in him to do so, by you asking him to take them away. He is standing right their saying “I’ll take your cares away, I will help you”. You just have to give them to him.  He won’t snatch them from you, you must give them to him.

God is that Father who helped his daughter. He is that boy who stood there and asked to carry her books, and he didn’t snatch them.

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Psalm 55:22 Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.

Psalm 62:8 Trust in him at all times; [ye] people, pour out your heart before him: God [is] a refuge for us. Selah.
