In life we go through moments that we feel like giving up, moments where the burden can feel very heavy. It is in those moments that the Holy Spirit helps us to cope with the situation we face. In 1 Peter 5: 7 he tells us once more, “casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” All we have to do is learn to put our worries into the hands of the Lord. We are not called to carry what only God can carry. If His Word says cast your burden, then we have to be obedient to Him.
Jesus himself said it in Matthew 11: 29-30, “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” The burden of the Lord is light, his yoke is not difficult, one can bear it very easily! But for this to happen it will be necessary to exchange our own burden, our worries and problems for the yoke of the Lord, his burden will be light because he bears it! Our shoulders will grow tired, our strength will be exhausted, but if we learn to go to the Lord we will never faint.
Today the Holy Spirit helps us to cope with every situation in life, we will never faint if we trust Him! As Psalm 27: 13-14 tells us, “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!” This morning it is important to learn to wait on God, not to run with our own plan, or in our own knowledge, let us wait in prayer for the strength of the Holy Spirit! He is our helper, counselor and faithful friend. He will be with us in every difficult situation to help us continue our journey. The burden will be light and yoke easy because he will hold us forever.
