“Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.” Psalm 55:22 (NIV)
We are thinking especially today of one special word in this verse. It is the word “sustain.” We think of this word as being made-up of two words in a long ago language. It really means to hold up from underneath. So the promise of our verse today is that if we allow God to take care of things that are a burden for us he will do that and will also hold us from underneath. Our verse also says that He will not let us fall if we allow Him to handle problems for us – he will not allow us to be shaken off our foundation which is Himself. God wants to carry our burdens and also to carry us. Let us never forget the promise of this verse.
