SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/30/15- “Let The LORD Have It All!” (Psalms 55:22)
Premise Question: Why do we, The Company of The Redeemed, who are the most cherished and greatly beloved people of The Most High Sovereign LORD, choose to continue to carry and hold on to the heavy burdens in our lives, being entirely way too reticent to let go of them, when they are the very reasons we are constantly being weighted down, beaten up, torn apart, pulled down and kept down, and which, ultimately leads us to our total decimation and destruction; when we have been strongly encouraged and exhorted to give all of them to The LORD, by letting Him have and deal with it all for us?
“Give your burdens to the LORD, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.” (Psalms 55:22 NLT)
Hurl and release all of your painful suffering, grief, wounds, afflictions, apprehensions, self-doubt, anguish, uncertainties, misfortune, mistakes, mishaps and fretting over disappointing failures, upon The LORD God Almighty, who is loving, merciful, full of great grace and consolatory comfort. For He has shown a tremendous propensity for you and will provide an abundance of whatever is needed; in order to supply the appropriate nourishing for your flourishing. He, The LORD God Almighty, will not ever, not under any circumstance or condition, nor at any given time, let those who are virtuous and upright, the righteous, be overtaken, overwhelmed, nor will He allow them to be defeated or destroyed, by the evil one. (Psalm 55:22 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Why would one choose to hold on to their heavy burdens and cares, when they could unburden themselves, by simply releasing them to The LORD and then, allowing Him to carry and deal with them on their behalf?
A myriad of reasons and explanations can be sighted, but here are just a few: Pride—”I don’t need anyone to help me, I can carry and manage them on my own, I got this!” Lack of trust—”The last time I trusted someone, by becoming vulnerable and telling them what was going on in my life, next thing I know, everybody knew what was going on in my life and it was too much to bear!” Bitterness—”I’ve been hurt so deeply, that every time I think about it, I get overwhelmed and the bitterness in me just grows exponentially!”
Unforgiving—”Don’t you realize the extent of what they did to me, I’m never going to forgive them for what they did to me!” Resentfulness—”I’m completely displeased, flabbergasted and indignant, that you, of all people, do not understand why I am so justified in my resentment!” Malice—”My evil, but entirely justifiable intent, is to reciprocate, by hurting them like they hurt me!” Vengefulness—”I can’t wait until I can pay them back and get my sweet revenge upon them, by inflicting great harm and injury upon them!”
Pride will always not end well for anyone! Not being able to trust leads one down a path of hopelessness and loneliness! Bitterness not only defiles and has an affect on the individual person, but will also defile and have a dramatic effect on those around them! Unforgiving holds one captive and in bondage to others! Resentfulness will never bring anyone real joy and pleasure, but will produce frustration and indignation! Malice is a cancer that brings annihilation and destruction upon oneself, as well as, others! And finally, Vengefulness will not ever truly be satisfying nor fulfilling to anyone! So, what must one do? Get rid of it all! Release it all! Give it all to The LORD! Let Him deal with it in His own way and on your behalf! Take The LORD at His Word! Come unto Him, cast all of your burdens and cares upon Him, because He really does care for you, and His yoke is easy and His burden is light! (Matthew 11:28-30, 1 Peter 5:7) Once more—”Let The LORD Have It All!” Blessings…
