In this life we would love to escape with out any burdens.
But Jesus said cast your burdens on him.
Why did he say that ?
Because he knew that we were going to have some burdens.
Burdens will come in this life, but they will be light if we have Jesus approach to life.
Don’t sweat the small stuff.
And it’s all small stuff.
Because you are a child of God.
And Daddy said put that weight on him.
Why are you carrying it around.?
You are not built to carry all that stuff.
God allows the burden to get heavy so you can depend on Him.
He allows you to cry at night. So He can come and wipe your tears away.
We must remember that my God is a present help in time of trouble ( ps. 46:1)
If you had no trouble how would you know, He was an on time God?
Burdens are not physical but psychological and spiritual.
I feel overwhelming.
I don’t know how I am going to make it.
My back is against the wall, I am on my last dime.
If it’s not one thing it’s another.
Burdens are not heavy.
It’s all in the mind.
That’s why the bible says let this mind be in you as in Christ Jesus.
The song writer: At the cross. At the cross. Where I first saw the light and the burden of by heart rolled away. It was there by faith that I received my sight.
Another way that we lightened our burden is to help someone else with theirs.
We know that misery loves company.
If I am doing bad.
I want you to do just a little worse than I am.
If I have no love life. I don’t want you to have one.
I say I want you to be happy. But if it means without me. Then the hell with your happiness.
I am my brothers keeper.
And I should hurt when you hurt and rejoice when you rejoice.
Because we are one body.
And one spirit.
The spirit of the Lord.
And if I say I love the Lord, and hate my brother, and don’t treat them right.
God called me a liar.
When you are in pain.
Go pray for someone.
We can make lives better by helping people get rid of burdens that make them miserable.
The bible says give and it shall be given to you.
You will need someone to lighten your burden.
Money can’t do it.
Because it’s spiritual.
Jesus was burden down when God had no choice but to turn His back on His only Son.
The burdens of all the worlds sin was on Him.
My sin, Your sin, Past. Present, and Future sins.
Just my sin is enough to wear anyone out.
But God said I can handle your sin.
Because you can’t.
Because the wages of sin is death.
So I had to die.
I had to pay the price.
The death penalty was the punishment.
God set it up that way, and God does not go back on his word.
The gift of God is eternal life.
Thank God for the gift.
So if I die for you.
The burdens you have I will gladly carry them.
Why are you burden?
I took those with me to the grave.
Because I knew your burdens before they came upon you.
Stop holding on to something that’s not there.
We walk by faith and not by what you feel.
How it looks.
How it smells.
How it taste.
He died to set you free.
He died to take your burdens, cause He knew we couldn’t handle them.
The burden is not there, He already carried it for you…..
