Psalm 55:22 (HCSB) “Cast your burden on the Lord, and He will support you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.”
It’s a perpetual promise that is made over and over again in the Bible: Whatever “it” is, God can handle it. Life isn’t always easy. In fact most times far from it! Sometimes, life can seem like a endless, relentless, character-building, fear-challenging journey. But even when the storm clouds rise in our life, even during our darkest hours, we are covered by a loving God.
When we are worried, God can reassure us; when we are sad, God can comfort us. When our hearts are broken, God is not just near; He is ever present. So we must lift our thoughts and prayers to the Lord. When we do, the Lord will answer our prayers. Why? Because the Lord is our shepherd, and He has promised to protect us now and forever.
God’s hand uplifts those who turn their hearts and prayers to Him. Will you count yourself among that number? Will you accept God’s peace and wear God’s armor to stand firm against the temptations and distractions of our dangerous world? If you do, you can live courageously and victoriously, knowing that even on the darkest days, you and your Heavenly Father can handle every challenge you face, today and forever.
Prayer: Awesome God, help us to surrender our struggles and trials to you. Thank you for your covering that protects us and thank you that our strength is found in you alone. In the name of Jesus Amen.
