Numbers 16:41-18:32 / Mark 16:1-20 / Psalm 55:1-23 / Proverbs 11:7

Standout Verse:

Psalm 55:22

“Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you.  He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.”

The Lord wants us us to cast our troubles, burdens, heartaches, and anything else that is weighing us down on Him.  He loves us and never intended us to “go it alone”.  He promises that He will never leave us or forsake us and makes it clear that He wants to walk beside us “along the way” and carry us and shelter us under His wings in times of trouble. 

We live in a fallen world and at some point we will all face unforeseen troubles that will be part of our journey.  But God promises that as we abide in Him and walk close to Him, He will sustain us (i.e. give us everything we need to make it through).  He won’t allow those who cling to Him, love Him and abide in Him to be crushed.  Remember: HE IS A GOOD AND CARING FATHER WHO DEEPLY LOVES HIS CHILDREN – that is the rock solid TRUTH.
