Well intentioned people may when trying to comfort you when you are feeling overwhelmed, “God will never give you any more than you can handle”. The problem with that statement is that it isn’t true. This week so far we have learned that God will often give us more than we can handle to teach us to put something down, to encourage us to hand something off, and trust that we are to give everything to Him. How do you do that? Psalm 55:22 tells us that we are to “Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you” …
The Hebrew word translated as cast, is a word that means to cast like a fishing line. It means to hurl. It means to throw as far away from us as possible. We are not to carry our cares and burdens, we are to hurl them to the feet of the cross of Christ. So, if you are carrying a burden, if you have more than you can handle, then take this Godly advice. Put something down… Give something away…and Cast ALL your cares on God.
Let God take it, because He wants to. Cast your cares on Him, because He cares for you. Cast your cares upon Him because He cares so much that He died on a cross for you and He will carry you through when you’ve got more than you can handle.
