Psalm 55: 22 ” Cast your burdens on the Lord and he will sustain you.” He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.
Sustain means to strengthen or support physically or mentally. It means to hold or to bear up. It means to comfort, encourage and to be the source of one’s strength. Have you ever been in a season in your life when you felt like things were just too hard? You felt like it was just too much and you just could not handle the pressure. You may feel that the pain is unbearable and you think to yourself, I just don’t have the strength to get through this. That was my exact feelings when I finally grasped the reality that I had lost my mom. It still seems so unreal to me; however, as I grieve her passing, as I heal from her loss, I realize that God is sustaining me. He is strengthening me each day and a lot of the times I believe that he is carrying me. At first I wanted to be mad and upset. God how could you allow this to happen? I thought I was doing everything that you wanted. I thought that you were pleased with my progress and that I was on the right track doing the right things. So many questions and so many people to blame but in the midst of all those questions and concerns, God assured me that his love was everlasting and that his plan was never to hurt me or anger me. He continues to comfort me and to encourage me. In my times of frustration I quickly realize that maybe the reasons I am so annoyed and frustrated on my spiritual journey is because I am standing and holding on to promises that God never made to me. He did not promise we would never lose a loved one. He did not promise that we would never go through difficult times nor did he promise that everything would work out the way that we wanted them to but he did promise that when things get tough he would sustain us. He promised that he would never leave nor forsake us. He promised that in troubled times he would be our strong tower, our refuge and our comfort. He promised that those whose mind is stayed on him, he would keep in perfect peace. He also promised that weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. So as I attempt to recover from such a huge loss in my life, I’m remembering the true promises of God and relying on his sustaining power that’s at work. If you are experiencing a rough patch, my prayer is that God will sustain you as well. Keep the faith and Hang in there!!!
