Beloved, To cast your burden upon God, is to rest upon His providence and promise. And in doing so, He will carry you in the arms of His power, as a nurse carries a child; and will strengthen your spirit by His Spirit, so that you shall sustain the trial. He will never allow you to be so shaken by any trouble, as to quit your love to God, or comfort in Him. You will never be utterly cast down. The Lord bears the burden of your sorrows and He wants you to leave all your burdens and troubles to Him. In every trial, call upon the Lord, turn the situation to Him and he will save you.He shall hear you and never blame you for coming too often; in fact, the oftener the more welcome. So, whatever the affliction, cross, distress, fears, failure, sickness, disappointments, and all your affairs, lay them upon the shoulders of the able and mighty God, by faith, prayer and confident expectations of an awesome results. He will surely sustain you and grant you victory!
