We’re looking at 5 Reasons Why We Don’t Experience a Light Burden. We’ve looked at the possibility that we may be carrying a burden that’s not ours and examined how to Cast Our Cares on the Lord. Now we need to consider that God may have entrusted us with a burden for a special reason.
Sometimes we do not understand that burdens we carry are something God has entrusted to us – because He trusts us with them.
We may be carrying a far bigger burden, but have we ever cared to know the resources given us to be able to carry it? We were so busy comparing the size of our burden’s with our neighbors’, but have we ever cared to compare the strength we have with the strength that they possess?
Every test that you have experienced is the kind that normally comes to people. But God keeps his promise, and he will not allow you to be tested beyond your power to remain firm; at the time you are put to the test, he will give you the strength to endure it, and so provide you with a way out. (1 Corinthians 10:13)
The burden given you is in direct proportion to your strength. The pain you bear is in direct proportion to the tolerance that you possess.
You’re God’s treasure that He’s shining up. He trusts you with every burden He gives you.
He’s not giving you more than you can handle.
I know some are saying, “I just wish He didn’t trust me so much.”
“It feels like I’m passing through the waters alone. It feels like I’m being swept away in the raging river. It feels like the flames have set me ablaze.”
Is it a matter of “I Feel” or “I Trust”?
Often when we say “I feel” it shows who we trust. Are you trusting your feelings or are you trusting God?
The context of Jesus’ light burden starts in verse 25 of Matthew 11:
At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure. “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
What makes child-like faith so precious to God? It’s their trust.
