Secrets to Find Freedom from Burdens

9 Nov

“Did you read that?” my friend said. “What an idiot…”

Harsh words, I thought, but part of me agreed with her.

A man was fishing in the ocean somewhere. He cast his line and hours later, he got a tug. But it must have been a fat, papa fish because the struggle got fierce. The fisherman gripped the line with all his might. The struggle grew more intense. And what’s to be expected happened—the fish won. One strong yank pulled the man right out of the boat and he splashed into the ocean.

Not funny, not really. You and I have done the same thing. We ask, pray and believe that God will take care of our concerns and all the ugly stuff that happens. But when we do, in our heart, we’re still gripping on so tight. And before we know it, we’re about to be pulled off from the boat of peace into the ocean of turmoil.

Here are three secrets to let go our burdens today so tonight, sleep can come back.

  1.  Choose to whom you will cast that pain, that disappointment and fear. If the Lord is the first choice, the solution has already begun.
  2.  Believe that He, the God of the universe, powerful and mighty can sustain us, carry us and provide what we need for the journey.
  3.  Change your grip—instead of holding on to your burden, hold on tight to God’s promise and to the belief that He wants to set us free And trusting that no matter how dark it gets, how much the pain sears and how deep the fear burns, He will never, never let us fall.

God said so: “Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall” (Psalm 55:22).

Father, I confess the burdens that trouble my heart still have my fingerprints on them. I vow to let them go, to release them, and be set free from the. Grant me the wisdom to remember the battle is yours and you already proclaimed victory. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
• What are you holding on to right now?
• Where do you go first when troubles come through?
• What will it take for you to be set free?

    Wonderful words of wisdom. We take on such heavy burdens by holding on to things.

      You’re so right. We must remember that we are in Him and He is in us and that miraculous things are happening all the time.
