Give God Your Burdens

Faith is trusting that Gid will settle the accounts with those who have been unjust and unfair with you. The psalmist David wrote: “Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved”(Ps. 55:22). No one travels the road of life without being affected by injustice at one time or another.

give god your burdensBut the worst thing that can happen to you is to develop victimitis.

Victimitis is carrying your grudge and nursing the hurts. This only produces a whole new batch of emotional demons to torment your soul! Resentment, anger, self-pity and even vengeance become a mixed-up recipe for messed-up feelings.

If you walk the walk of faith, there will be times when you’ll be treated unfairly. At such times, you can be assured that God can handle the injustice a lot better than you can.

You have the faith that He’ll settle the score in a way that will be helpful and not hurtful to everyone concerned. So don’t carry the grudge; bury it.

You can be positive about one thing. God knows the ins and outs of the entire upsetting situation a lot better than you do. God knows how to pull the weeds without killing the flowers!

He understands your opponents, adversaries, and enemies a lot better than you do. God knows how to turn an enemy into a friend, too!

Take time to pray: Dear God, with your help, I promise to drop all resentments, all injustices, into the deepest sea of Your power and mercy and love. I trust you to settle the matter in the best way!

Thank you, God, for taking over this problem before it does untold damage to my spirit! Amen.
