HE BEARS US UP!
Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears us up; God is our salvation. Our God is a God of salvation, and to GOD, the Lord, belong deliverances from death. —Psalm 68:19-20
It is our Lord God Almighty who bears us up daily. Without Him we wouldn’t be breathing. He not only created all things but He holds all things together— “He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:17). He is the only way of salvation (Acts 4:12) and the only one who delivers us from death (Hebrews 2:14). Yes, truly, our Lord bears us up daily and for all eternity. How fortunate are we?
Why is it that we try bear ourselves us when Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30). Don’t carry those burdens. Give them to Jesus , learn from Him, let Him bear them up and He will give us rest. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7tGUNVrqPs
I thank You dear Father that I don’t have to bear burdens, but that I can bring them to Jesus and He will bear them for me. May I do so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. Yes, so be it.
