Psalm 68:19 KJV
Blessed [be] the Lord, [who] daily loadeth us [with benefits, even] the GOD OF OUR SALVATION. Selah.
The real meaning of the Bible verse above is that God will daily carry you on His shoulders like a doting Father does his daughter. *When you imagine that you are in the thick of challenges and fighting hard, God is actually carrying you on His shoulders*.
He’s bearing you up. He promises to do this even when you are old and grey.
Isaiah 46:4 (ESV)
“Even to your old age I am he, and to gray hairs I will carry you. I have made, and I will bear; I will carry and will save”.
If God is not only bearing your burden but even bearing you up, what manner of day should you expect daily other than the miraculous?
However God does expect you to consciously invite Him into the matter by “casting all your anxieties or cares upon Him”. He cares for and is greatly interested in you. (1Peter 5: 7).
Until you make it God’s business, you cannot be officially free of worry.
To have God carry you or lift your burden, you must respond to His invitation with a faith filled heart. In Matthew 11:28, Jesus invites all who are burdened with toil, cares and labour. He promises to give REST. In this case, Jesus teaches you the principle of stress free strong expectation of good.
Cast your cares upon Him in prayer and child - like Faith. Drop the burdens, fears and anxieties of these past months before Him. Don’t start the new month with worries. Thoughts of Bills and children’s school fees may fill you fear but there’s no need for that. Just believe in the Lord your Shepherd and YOU SHALL NOT WANT OR LACK.
Relax and allow Him to carry you up on His great shoulders.
The fragrance of victory and joy shall be as refreshing as the salubrious mountain air.
Happy New Month Beloved.
I am an expression of the Divine!
