Luther’s Burdens

by Pastor Ken

Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you. He will never allow the righteous to be moved.

Psalm 55:22

Luther was ridden with guilt because of his sins. He tried a number of different things to ease the burden of his guilt, but nothing worked. He exhausted himself. He wanted rest. But it wasn’t until he put his burdens at the foot of the cross—giving them to Jesus—that he was finally free.

You, too, need to cast all your burden of sin at the foot of the cross. When you do Jesus will sustain you and He will never allow you to be moved. Be open and honest with Jesus and He will listen attentively and He will provide a solution to your problems and soothe your pain.

Pray: Father, I am casting the burden of my sins to the foot of the cross for Jesus to take care of. I want rest in Him. Please let it be so. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
