Pile up your weights

Psalm 55:22-23

We often have this idea that if we prayed and asked God to remove our burdens away and he only removed some of them, it means that we are supposed to carry the remainder.

The truth is that when we ask God to carry our pressures in life what he does with that weight that is crushing us is that which will bring Him glory and make us more like him. 

It’s the way he chooses to deal with our burdensome situations that makes the difference. Whether he decides to remove them totally, or partially or allow the weight for a while, our job is to ask him first and then rest assured that every weight we sense and carry he will do with that the very best.  

We need to ask God often how to release the heavyweights we carry that we shouldn’t and how to be patient with some burdens in life in order that his deep work in us can be completed.

When we don’t do that we carry weights we shouldn’t that are crushing us and we neglect to pick up obligations that strengthen us and make us more like Jesus.  

The invite is always -come to me all you who carry heavy burdens and find rest……
