This Day in History: 0000-05-25
May 25 – Psalm 55:22-23
Give your burdens to the Lord, and He will take care of you.
He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.
But You, oh God, will send the wicked down to the pit of destruction.
Murderers and liars will die young, but I am trusting You to save me.
Have you had a hard time finding your footing lately? Is there stress in your life that has taken over everything else and left you floundering? When we go through seasons of uncertainty there is hope to be found in the comfort of our God. He invites us to hand all our burdens over and allow Him to take care of us. We can unload all our worries upon the One who created sun, moon, and stars; the One who holds them all in place. He has promised to secure our footing and keep us from falling. So let’s keep our feet planted firmly on His path!
His justice can be trusted. He will not allow the wicked to prosper forever. Though it may seem like so many people are getting away with, or even thriving as a result of their wayward choices, let’s remember that they are headed for destruction. This life is nothing more than a breath in the shadow of eternity. Choosing to follow God may cause additional trials here on earth. Sometimes it seems like it would be so much easier, or even more satisfactory to follow our own desires, but eternity is so much longer than these short lives we live. Our reward will far outweigh the cost. We will spend time immeasurable with our Lord, enjoying the fellowship we’ll inherit as His precious children. So let’s trust Him to save us from our cares today, my friends. Let’s give our burdens to the Lord.
