Don’t Pick Them Up Again

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21 King James Version

There is a song that I really love and it is a song that has helped me learn to trust Jesus. Pastor Charles Albert Tindley penned these beautiful words. The name of the song is “Leave It There”. I wonder how many times we have sung these words and never did them.

These words have helped me so much “Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.” I think if we are honest with ourselves we will have to admit that there are times when we take our burdens to the Lord and as soon as we are through praying and asking Him for help, we pick them up again.

When we pick our burdens up again, what we are saying is “We don’t trust You, Jesus, to solve the problems and crises in our lives”. May God have mercy on us and forgive us for not trusting His beloved Son. Do you take your burdens to Jesus and then pick them up again? If so, you are hurting Him and breaking His heart.

May God help all of us to do what the words of this beautiful song tell us to do “Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there”. Are you willing to trust Jesus with your burdens? If you are, don’t pick them up again. He is waiting for you to trust Him. There are times when He can’t work in our lives because we try to solve our problems ourselves. Let’s get out of His way and leave our burdens with Him.
