If you’ve ever carried a full backpack, armful of grocery bags, or heavy package to mail, you know the relief that comes when you release your burden.  Your muscles relax, your arms tingle, and you can catch your breath.

If you’ve ever been carrying a heavy load and someone came along to help lighten it, you know the kind of gratitude you feel for such assistance.

God provides us with the same kind of relief each day.  From the laundry list of cares and concerns we continually seem to carry to the new items we’ll add today, he can lift them all.

We don’t have to strain, strive, and struggle alone.  In his power, sovereignty, and wisdom, he knows the leverage points that will help us life our part of the burden.  As Jesus also reminds us, it’s light and easy to carry.

Today, res in the knowledge that God bears your burdens.

CHALLENGE:  Email a friend or loved one and offer to help them deal with a burden currently weighing them down.
