Giving Our Heavy Troubles to God

Cast your burden on the LORD, And He shall sustain you -Psalm 55:22

He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.Things which we reckon great are very little with God. If ye knew what God thought of our talk sometimes, you would be surprised at yourselves. We have some great trouble-we go burdened with it, saying, “O Lord God! what a great trouble I am burdened with.” Why, methinks, God might smile at us, as we do sometimes at a little child who takes up a load too heavy for it (but which ye could hold between your fingers), and staggereth, and saith, “Father, what a weight I am carrying.” So there are people who stagger under the great trouble which they think they are bearing. Great, beloved! There are no great troubles at all: “the clouds are the dust of His feet.” If you would but so consider them, the greatest things with you are but little things with God. Suppose, now, that ye had all the troubles of all the people in the world, that they all came pouring on your devoted head: what are cataracts of trouble to God?-” Drops in the bucket.” What are whole mountains of grief to Him? Why, “He taketh up the mountains as the dust of the balance.” And He can easily remove your trials. Sit not down then thou son of weariness and want, and say, “My troubles are too great.” Hear the voice of mercy: “Cast thy burden on the Lord and He will sustain thee, He will never suffer the righteous to be moved.”

…Ah! it does not matter how heavy troubles are if you can cast them on the Lord…Never be afraid of troubles. However heavy they are, God’s eternal shoulders can bear them. He, whose omnipotence is testified by revolving planets, and systems of enormous worlds, can well sustain you. Is His arm shortened, that He cannot save, or is He weary, that He cannot hold you fast? Your troubles are nothing to God, for the very “clouds are the dust of His feet.”~ C.H. Spurgeon
