Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits...

Psalms 68:19

He Welcomes Our Burdens

Upon first reading Psalms 68:19, “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits…”, I thought it was referring to all that God blesses us with every day. I had a picture in my mind of a wheel barrow being filled with blessings from God. As I studied further I discovered that “loadeth us with benefits” really means “bears our burdens”. Think about that. Day in day out, day in day out, God bears our burdens.

He welcomes our burdens. We are instructed in God’s Word to cast them upon the Lord. In exchange, He gives us sustaining grace, strength, and peace. What is weighing you down today? God stands ready with His “wheel barrow” to carry your burdens away. Will you load them on Him, and let Him carry them for you?
