“Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burden, the God who is our salvation. God is to us a God of deliverances; and to God the Lord belong escapes from death.” (Psalm 68:19-20)
We think it is our work that does all that is needed. The farmer plants the seed, but God causes it to grow. Look beyond and see that the Lord causes all things to thrive, grow and live. It is the Lord who daily carries the burden; and we are given the opportunity to praise Him. God offers deliverance to all who come to Him that they may live, prosper and have their being. Come to the Lord.
Lord, I am busy with what I do, and think that I am the one who builds, creates and does these things. Remove far from me the thinking that depends upon myself that I would look to You who carries the burden that we all may live. You are the God who causes all things to be and creates the possibility for life and all prosperity. Lead me, O Lord, in the way You would have me go.
Lord Jesus, You have come to lead the way into the true life which You have created. Guide me in the way of life that is eternal and help me walk in Your ways. Keep me from the arrogance of self-sufficiency that I may know that it is You who causes all things to work the way they do, knowing that all things will work together for good for those who love You. Lead me today, O Lord. Amen.
