2 Samuel 24:1-25; Jeremiah 8:1-22; Ephesians 2:11-22

Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee. Psalm 55:22
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Peter 5:7

It is the blessed privilege of the believer to let go of every burden, committing ourselves and our burdens to the One who cares for us. There is nothing too large or too small for Him to do for you in accordance with His will. Therefore, when we come before His throne of grace, remember that He has been “touched with the feeling of our infirmities” (Heb. 4:15), and is “able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think” (Eph. 3:20). —E. C. B.

I hear His voice amidst the stillness blest, and care and fear are past.
I lay me down within His arms to rest, from all my works at last. —Gerhard Tersteegen
