GIVE IT TO JESUS!!! I’m sure you’ve heard that many times and it is so true. There are things much too heavy and too burdensome for us to try and carry ourselves. In the old hymn, “What A Friend We Have In Jesus” there’s a great part that says,
Oh what peace we often forfeit
Oh what needless pain we bare
ALL BECAUSE WE DO NOT CARRY
Everything to God in prayer
I love those words and oh how true they are. What a wonderful thing to know, there are things that we don’t have to carry. We have a friend in Jesus who will gladly take the things we give Him and lighten our load. Just give it to Jesus.
There is only one more thing I would like to add to this. Many of us want to be in control and we don’t like it when we feel like we’ve lost that control. With that being said, I believe some people bring things to Jesus, but end up taking them back. They give him their burdens in prayer, then something happens and they end up taking it back and trying to fix it themselves.
Could this be you today? Are you back to worrying and being stressed out? Did you ever consider, that it could be your own fault. Maybe you didn’t think God was moving fast enough, so you ended up taking back what you had already given to Him. Once you’ve given something to the Lord, you have to trust that He is working things out for your good. It may take longer than you want it too, but your impatience might have caused you to start carrying that heavy load again. When you give it to Jesus, you must let Him take control, which means you have to release yours. God doesn’t have it, if you’re still worrying about it.
If you’re carrying a load too heavy and your burdens are too much to bear, GIVE IT TO JESUS AND DON’T TAKE IT BACK!!!
