Word Filled Wednesday: Never alone

Amazing how fast the days go. It is wednesday again, and this week´s hostes of Word Filled Wednesday is All You Have to Give.






Psa 55:22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.



There are so much in this world that can feel heavy on our hearts. Sickness, economy, spiritual battles, a family problem.... We live in an imperfect world, and we are imperfect people.

At those times, sometimes we pray, and God seems to be waiting for our prayer, because right away, we have the answer right there.

Other times we pray, lift up our eyes with faith, but there is no answer.

Sometimes we pray for long, but we look up, and it is still rainning.

At those times it is easy to feel alone. It is easy to feel forgotten. It is easy to feel without hope.
And at those times Satan snicks in, and tries to still our faith.

It is then that we have to find one of God´s promises to His people and hold on to it, so hard, that Satan will not be able to move us.

God tells us to give up our burdens and put it at His feet. He promises to carry them for us. He also promises us He will hold our hand and pull us out of our darkest hour.

He will not leave us, not forsake us.

Look up to Jesus, He is our deliverer.

Amen!!
The moment we have anxiety, we must immediately entrust it to the Lord. We do not have to tolerantly accumulate anxieties upon ourselves item by item. There is a way out. We can rejoice and be free from anxiety because we have God and because we can entrust all things to God through prayers.

Thank you for those words. It's tough to hang on to the faith when it's raining... but, the reward is great.

This speaks to me this week, especially! As a "control freak" I struggle with giving it over to God all too often!

what a great reminder. Praise the Lord we can cast it all on Him!

I feel like when I am going through the storm I am like the disciples... " Lord, I´m sinking!" and He just steps in and calms my heart and the storm around me. It´s when I get through the storm that I remember to cast my care on Him. ;)

What a beautiful post!
