“Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you.” 1 Samuel 3:18
It has been said, “No pain, no gain.” What does that statement allude to? The fact that pain is inevitable! Should that frighten us? Should we live in fear and peak around every corner before going anywhere or doing anything? Absolutely not!
The Bible teaches that we do not have to bear pain alone. As a matter of fact, we were not designed to handle it all by ourselves! What we have been designed for, is a personal relationship with our Creator. Through that personal relationship, we will find strength and help in times of need.
I challenge you to look at pain from this perspective. This passage reveals that we are to CAST, or literally throw, our pains to the Lord. It does not say that He may help or sometimes will help, the words are clear. It is a clear action that the Lord promises, “He SHALL” sustain you. That’s a promise!
