When Jesus takes every burden away

Do you know what it’s like to have Jesus remove every burden and every yoke, every care and anxiety? I do. And many do. …The glorious liberty of the sons of God.

    I do too!! There are some situations in my “life” that I have no control over. All I can do is pray and trust Him. Some situations concern my family members, my own children, my work…

    I’ve been told that I sometimes seem aloof, but nothing could be further from the truth. I have the peace of God that is beyond the carnal man’s understanding.

    I recently had a conversation with a woman who professes to be a Christian, but is paralyzed with fear and anxiety and lives a life in chains. She says she is a prophetess like Elijah. She lives in fear of the end times and return of the Lord. I told her I would pray for her and I did and still am. I questioned her fear of the Lord’s return, which we all look forward to, and she accused me of all kinds of off the wall things not worth mentioning.

    Not that I don’t struggle with my feelings sometimes, I do. But I always come back to the Lord’s promise that His yoke is easy, and His burden is light. I cast my cares on Him, because He cares for me.

    Amen, thanks sister.

    I think it’s great when we can testify of what the Lord is doing in our lives. Of course, not be focused on ourselves, yet still testify.

    One way people misunderstand us, when we say Jesus has taken all our burdens away, is they think this is simply due to us disengaging from reality and ignoring the challenges we face. They don’t understand that the peace Jesus gives is in the face of the greatest challenges.

    A true story about something that happened many years ago. I was visiting my sister and her husband (who was a terrible drunk at the time) started laying into me about my faith in the face of adversity.
    As he was yelling about God …he suddenly stopped and said. “I can’t do this anymore. There has to be a God, and He must be with you because everytime I start to yell at you I calm down all of a sudden”.

    He stormed out of the house at the time. Years later, he is now eagerly searching Scripture and is prayers away from being saved. Please pray for Pete.

    Thank you for praying brother. Pete is also listening to a local christian radio station.
