We all carry cares and concerns in our hearts. We all face issues that would endeavour to get us down. Yet in all this, God wants to step into our lives and sustain us. We can either sustain ourselves, and get exhausted, or be sustained by God and have renewed strength. God wants to sustain you. It does not matter what you are facing or what you are going through, God wants to sustain us every step of the way. As we give our concerns and ourselves to God, He can step in and begin to sustain us.
CARRY THE WEIGHT
The meaning of the word sustain includes a unique aspect. To sustain also means to bear the weight of something. An example is living under continued pressure and stress. We can say that a person sustains a pressured life. I remember a lady who was going through a difficult situation. When I tried to help her, she said to me that she has got broad shoulders and she can handle it. This is what you call carrying a weight or sustaining yourself. God has told us that He wants to sustain us IF only we would hand Him our worries and cares.
Psalm 55:22 Cast your cares on the LORD and He will sustain you.
This means that God wants to carry the weight for us. We must learn to let go and give it to God.
