Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall. NIV
The Message translates this verse, “Pile your troubles on God’s shoulders — he’ll carry your load, he’ll help you out.” The Message
Have you every carried a worry for a long time and then finally given it to God? It does seem like a weight is lifted from your shoulders. The feeling of relief is absolutely physical. Why is that? If we know that God tells us over and over again not to worry, and if we know that He is trustworthy to carry our cares and our fears, if we know that He will sustain us, why do we worry in the first place?
I’m really going to think about that today. I don’t want to be weighed down by worry … ever!
