#5577 – Lighten the Load

Good morning people who come to the Lord with the burdens that you are carrying.

I heard the following words by the Spirit: “Give it to Jesus = lighten the load.”

Anything that remains solely in my hands will remain a burden that I am not called to carry. I pray we receive revelation truth today that results in freedom in our hearts.

Everything that is important to us is safer in the hands of God than it is in our hands.

Here’s a scripture that shows us the heart and invitation of God for us all:

Matthew 11:28-30 NIV “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

When we are yoked (deeply connected to God), we do not carry burdens alone. In fact, it is His strength that enables heavy loads to not break us.

There is a deeper step for us that is revealed in another powerful scripture:

1 Peter 5:7 NIV Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

We are invited to give him all of our anxiety. The feelings, thoughts, burdens and pain that we so often carry – this is what we are to cast upon Him. He is faithful, He is strong, and He cares for you.

Is there something that you are carrying that you need to fully hand to the Lord?

It’s safer in God’s hands than in yours. You can trust Him with it because He truly does care for you.
