“Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.” Psalm 55:22 NKJV
This goes against my natural inclination to try to take everything on, control everything, do it all while trying to remain strong and positive. Casting a burden should be easy, but for some reason, it’s not. Who wouldn’t want to get rid of a burden? But I think what holds me back is fear, lack of trust and maybe even a lack of faith at times…..like one of those trust exercises where you don’t want to fall backwards because fear of someone catching you.
And I have to admit that I’ve not truly understood the latter part of that scripture…..that he wouldn’t let the righteous “move” or some translations say “fall”, “stumble”, “waiver”, etc. I have seen it all when it comes to “righteousness”. Maybe the righteous are not who I think they may be or I have a wrong expectation on what “to be moved” means.
But I am choosing to trust, to have faith, to cast my burden knowing that God will indeed catch me.
