Today’s devotional meditation is taken from Psalm 55:22, which says,
“Cast thy burden on the LORD, and He shall sustain thee: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.”
We will experience peace and confidence when we know the LORD’s ability to help us to maintain a state of normal conditions when we are being overcome with hardships. When David says “Cast your burdens upon the LORD…” He has in the past and is currently experiencing the LORD’s sustaining power in his life. Yes, things can become so overwhelming that we lose sight of how big God is. However, He is able to hold us up during our most burdensome circumstances to the point that we will never be shaken or destroyed.
I challenge everyone of us to reflect back on our most difficult and devastating moments, and see that He has kept us from being buried by our adversity. When we are beginning to feel engulfed by a distressing matter, step back and “Be still, and know that He is God…” (Psalm 46:10). He promised that He will sustain us.
