BURDEN BEARING

 
Psalm 68:19


"Praise be to the Lord, to God our Saviour, who daily bears our burdens." NIV


"Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation.
KJV


How many of us complain about the burdens we carry in this life? Do we really stop to remember that the heaviest part of the cross is at the top where the cross member is. That is the part our Lord Jesus Christ carried to Calvary's hill. He carries our burdens. We only hold on to the bottom, where the lightest part of the burden is. Of course we will have burdens in this life. But who are we to complain when the largest part of our burdens are being born by our Lord? We are a blessed people with no reason to complain.


Heavenly Father, we ask You to forgive us for complaining when life gets difficult. Where would we be if You were not carrying the heaviest part of our burden? Help us to remember that You are our help in times of trouble and give us hearts of thanksgiving regardless of what's going on around us. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

I like your line "We are a blessed people with no reason to complain." We truly are indeed blessed if we allow ourselves to remember that and that Jesus, indeed, is carrying our burdens for us and his yoke is so very light!

thanks for visiting my blog (Fear of the Lord) and your kind comment.

May the rest of your weekend be a restful one!

So very true. Who are WE to complain. His word says His burden is light. What an awesome God to carry the heaviness of our burdens for us. Thank you for the encouraging words today.

Blessings,
Mel
