Leave Your Burdens at the Cross

APRIL 18TH, 2020      |       We all do the same thing when trials come. At first, we turn to Jesus and pray with faith and conviction. We turn to Scripture and proclaim our trust, but then at some point, we lose our focus and go right back to the problem. We clearly know that we should leave it in God’s hands. But that is a hard concept to always put into practice. 

We need Him to show us the way. We can’t lose faith. We should continue to pray for strength and stand on His Word—God will never leave us. Matthew 11:28 (NIV) says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” We need to remember to lay our burdens at the foot of the Cross with hope and trust. Psalm 34:18-19 (NLT) tells us, “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time.” 

Trust in His power, wisdom, and mercy. Don’t take back what was meant for God to accomplish. In our darkest moments, God is there.

Leave Your Burdens at the Cross

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

Thank the Lord for His unending love.

Surrender your heart to Him and leave your burdens at the foot of the Cross.
