Text: 1 Peter 5: 7. Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Life is full of troubles and battles.
When you conquer a particular issue, another awaits you.
No man has the answer to all the troubles of life.
The world’s prescriptions on relieving burdens and trouble could either help for a moment or destroy forever.
Some time ago before I encountered the burden bearer, I had friends that taught me how to smoke and drink alcoholic drinks as a way of escaping stress and troubles, but I realized that It doubled my trouble as I would behave more stupid after the intake.
My friend, the world offers no solution to the burdens we bear in life.
Jesus Christ is the burden bearer.
He is a solution older than any kind of burden or trouble.
As trouble is normal to Man, so is solution normal to God through Jesus Christ the son.
In Job 14:1, the Bible tells us that the life of a man born of a woman is short and full of trouble.
Indeed no man can escape the troubles of life.
But the good news is this, Jesus Christ paid the ultimate price for the redemption of our soul.
A Life in Christ Jesus, tells us of another kind of birth.
A man in Christ is born again and a new creature.
He no more carries the birth of a woman, but the Spirit. John 3:5-6.
The Spirit birth gives us the Grace to live above troubles. Meaning that our burden doesn’t define us, our troubles never crush us, even amidst the challenges, we enjoy the presence, fellowship, and love of God. 2 Corinthians 4:8-10.
It is a birth that overcomes the world the Bible tells us. 1 John 5:4.
It springs up to everlasting life unlike the birth of flesh. John 3:16.
When we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, just as our Bible text tells us, He takes ALL of our burdens, not one because He cares for us.
Our trouble becomes His trouble.
His worries become our worries. Matthew 11:28-30.
Even amidst the challenges, He is there with us. Isaiah 43:2.
That is joy and one of the benefits of walking with the Lord.
Are you burdened and heavy laden?
Why not try Jesus Christ the burden bearer Today?
Welcome Him in your life and let Him take over those burdens and weaknesses.
Say these prayers to begin a new walk with Jesus Christ.
I acknowledge I am a sinner for my sins are not hidden from you.
I confess all of my sins to you this day.
I believe you died on the cross and rose again to set me free.
And I confess you this day as the Lord and personal savior of my life.
I denounce the devil every work of the flesh.
Wash me with your blood Jesus.
Take all my burdens Lord and give me your own yoke and burden for it is light and brings refreshment to my soul.
