Give Him your burdens
“Give your burdens to the Lord, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.”
Psalms 55:22 NLT
When there are things or situations that may be burdening our lives, the best option that can be taken is to give it to the Lord.
Now, this action could sound simple, but many times it is not, but in practice it involves at least three things:
Recognize that we have charges. Being a Christian does not make us immune to go through difficult times, one “victorious” life is not synonymous of zero problems.
Recognize that we need help. Being a Christian does not mean being self-sufficient, we need the care of God, and we need His protection.
Recognize the danger that we face. Being a Christian is to know that our enemy seeks to destroy us, kill us, he is not playing.
It’s a promise, God does not let the righteous slip and fall, but the righteous knows give his/her burdens before God and let Him to take care.
