Handing over the controls

“Cast your burden on the LORD, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.”

Psalm 55:22

Casting our burden on Christ is a spiritual transaction. Its like turning over our car to someone else to drive. Except this someone is God.

When we do so, we acknowledge that He is in charge of our lives and that the outcomes are ultimately in His control.

This lightens our load immensely. It relieves us from feeling responsible for things beyond our control.

No matter our circumstances, we need to find a way to release them into the care and keeping of our Lord Jesus to carry us through them.

And although our circumstances may not change right away, I pray that we will find real relief just through this process of knowing that God has taken charge. Amen.
