The Hardest Thing in the World

Posted by Dave Clayton on

I read this verse earlier in the week, and it has really begun to take root. The more I think about this verse, the more impossible it feels. Have you ever read a verse and felt that way? Have you ever had the feeling ... "well that sounds good and all, but I could never really do that?" 

This has been one of those verses.

"Cast your cares on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall." - Psalm 55:22

and then keep reading because the end of verse 23 will really get you:

"But as for me, I will trust in you."

I've been asking myself one simple question all week. Why is it so hard for me to give all my cares to the Lord?

I think the only honest answer is painful, but true -- I just don't trust him enough.

I want to challenge you today to do one of the hardest things in the world. Give every single care, burden, worry, stress, fear, feeling of inadequacy, etc. over to the Lord. He will sustain you. He will not let you fall. Put your trust in Him alone.

He is a big God. He can handle it. You cannot.
