Are you carrying a burden?
Proverbs 16:3 says, “Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established.”
Commit – Hebrew word galal means to roll, roll down, row away, remove. The picture is that is that of a camel, burdened with a heavy load; when the load is to be removed, the camel kneels down, tilts far to one side, and the load rolls off.
What a great lesson for us. Matthew 11:28 tells us to come to Him if we are heavy laden. We come, kneel down, roll our burdens onto the Lord, and rise free from a load that was not ours to carry!!
Burdens clog and distract our minds, bringing emotional fatigue.
Matthew 11:29 Amplified says, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. (I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.)”
