Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.
Charles Spurgeon comments on this wonderful promise, “He stands firm who stands in God . . . Like pillars, the godly stand immoveable, to the glory of the Great Architect. What’s your burden today? Whatever it is, God has promised to carry it for you if you cast it on Him. The concerns that weigh us down are a test of where our trust resides. Are we going to carry them ourselves and be crushed, or are we going to give them to God and rest in Him? I need to be reminded every day that it is God who sustains me, who gives me strength, and who directs every detail of my life for His glory.
There are many companion verses that join the chorus of God as our strength. Here are a few that have helped me this week

God is not served by human hands as though he needed anything, but he himself gives life and breath and everything. (Acts 17:25)
No eye has seen a God besides you, who works for those who wait for him. (Isaiah 64:4)
To old age I will carry you. I have made, and I will bear; I will carry and will save. (Isaiah 46:4)
Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)
