Psalm 55:22 – “Cast your burden on the Lord and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.”
To cast something according to the dictionary means to throw something forcefully in a specified direction. If you will, we could say: throw your burden forcefully on the Lord, and He will sustain you. He is mighty and strong, and no matter how forcefully your throw, not only will Jesus take it, but He will also sustain you!
And Jesus will never permit, allow, the righteous to be moved, to be shaken, to fall. No matter the trouble, no matter the battle, no matter the trial, He will-not-let you be moved!
When David wrote this Psalm he was going through a lot, he was emotionally weak, he was possibly depressed, and wanted an escape, a deliverance from the Lord. And in spite of all his problems, he knew where his help came from, always.
Like David, let us cast our burden on the Lord our Redeemer, our Strong Tower, our Rock, our Strength. Whether it is financial, emotional, physical – nothing is too hard for our Lord. He will take our burden, He will remove it according to His will and perfect plan, He will sustain us and guide us with His right hand, He will make our paths straight, He will flatten the mountain in front of us, He will be there by our side, regardless of the circumstance around us.
“Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens. Selah.” (Psalm 68:19)
