My Utmost For His Highest : "What To Do Under The Conditions"


April 13, 2012


Cast thy burden upon the Lord.

Psalms 55:22

We must distinguish between the burden-bearing that is right and the
burden-bearing that is wrong. We ought never to bear the burden of
sin or of doubt, but there are burdens placed on us by God which He
does not intend to lift off, He wants us to roll them back on Him.
"Cast that He hath given thee upon the Lord." (R.V. marg.) If we
undertake work for God and get out of touch with Him, the sense of
responsibility will be overwhelmingly crushing; but if we roll back
on God that which He has put upon us, He takes away the sense of
responsibility by bringing in the realization of Himself.

Many workers have gone out with high courage and fine impulses, but
with no intimate fellowship with Jesus Christ, and before long they
are crushed. They do not know what to do with the burden, it produces
weariness, and people say - "What an embittered end to such a

"Roll thy burden upon the Lord" - you have been bearing it all;
deliberately put one end on the shoulders of God. "The government
shall be upon His shoulder." Commit to God "that He hath given thee";
not fling it off, but put it over on to Him and yourself with it, and
the burden is lightened by the sense of companionship. Never
disassociate yourself from the burden.
