"Cast thy burden upon the Lord.....

"Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee:
he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved."

~Psalm 55:22

"To cast our burden upon God,
is to rest upon his providence and promise.
And if we do so, he will carry us in the arms of his power,
as a nurse carries a child; and will strengthen our spirits by his Spirit,
so that they shall sustain the trial.
He will never suffer the righteous to be moved;
to be so shaken by any troubles,
as to quit their duty to God, or their comfort in him.
He will not suffer them to be utterly cast down.
He, who bore the burden of our sorrows,
desires us to leave to him to bear the burden of our cares,
that, as he knows what is best for us, he may provide it accordingly.
Why do not we trust Christ to govern the world which he redeemed?"
~ Matthew Henry

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
