Why Keep Them?

19 Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens. Psalm 68:19

There is just so much packed into this little verse. The Scottish preacher Alistair Begg used to say of a similar verse in 1 Peter 5:7: “huuuuurl all your cares on on Him for He cares for you.”

You have burdens. I have burdens. Why do we keep them? Is it that we just don’t want to bother Him about them?

My Christian Life and Ethics teacher said often, “we take on more burdens than we were meant to bear.” Twenty years later it is still an accurate statement.

Is there anything at all stopping us from laying our burdens daily at His feet? Anything?
