Daily Read – Deuteronomy 5:1-6:25; Luke 7:11-35; Psalm 68:19-35; Proverbs 11:29-31
Blessed be the Lord, Who bears our burdens and carries us day by day,
even the God Who is our salvation! Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
I carry you day by day and minute by minute because you are engraved in the palm of My hand. I take you through every fiery trial and you do not smell of smoke. I carry you through the high raging waters and you do not drown. Even in the midst of the desert, I carry you to the rivers to quench your thirst.
Come to Me when you are weary and heavy-laden; I give rest for your soul. My yoke is easy and My burden light. Let me bear your burdens, you are not meant to carry them. My Word says to cast all your care on Me for I care for you. Do not resist surrendering your burdens to Me. The longer you hold on to them, the bigger they become making it more difficult to toss them to Me.
The world system is squeezing and pressing in on the church. Global economics and geographical disasters are beginning to burden My people, taking a heavy toll on them. Before you become overwhelmed with worry and anxiety, hand those burdens to Me. I am fully capable of carrying the load; you are not!
You keep trying to handle situations on your own using your strength rather than Mine. You cannot do such things and if you continue, your physical body will respond adversely.
To cross over into this next season, you must enter into My shalom peace. Allow Me to carry you over the threshold and into your new beginning. Discard the baggage from the previous season and loose yourself from its weight. It is critical that nothing holds you down in an earth bound state. My Spirit is blowing and My eagles need to be ready to catch the next gust of wind which will carry them into strategic positions for My coming move.
I will carry you there if you will let Me!
Lord Jesus, I release the cares and worries of this world. I come to You because I have become weary in well doing. I have taken on burdens, even from other people in my life. I cut off the tethers that hold me earth bound. I want to soar above the circumstances and into a position where I move effectually in Your next move. I want nothing to hinder me from full flight. Lord, I empty my suitcase of all cares, worries, and burdens and I cast them on You. I refuse to take them back and I ask the precious Holy Spirit to place a lock on the outside of my baggage preventing any further burden from entering. I have a wind gust to catch and I cannot afford for anything to weigh me down lest I miss out and it leaves without me.
