Life consists of many challenges and burdens – some tougher than others. As members of Team Jesus, we all have experienced tough losses, physical, emotional, and mental injuries, and conflicts with other teammates.

When it comes to challenges and burdens, we all handle them differently. But by and large, if we’re honest, most of us try to deal with them on our own using our own power, intellect, or control. Or, there are times when we do take our burdens to God, but only after we’ve tried our own hand at a solution. As followers of Christ, these strategies show a lack of faith in the guidance and principles of our playbook, the Word of God, and our Coach.

Trust God With All of Your Burdens

beating yourself upGod desires our trust. He wants to connect with us and bear all of our burdens (Matthew 11:28, 1 Peter 5:7). The problem is we don’t really believe that God will take care of our problems and meet our needs. We’re often impatient, and we want our problems solved immediately – in our own way.

Scripture tells us, though, that our Heavenly Father is most able to meet all of these needs (Philippians 4:19), but too often we listen to our enemy who wants us to believe differently.

Satan works hard using our senses, our sins, and our circumstances to lead us astray. Why? Because he wants to destroy us and take us down a path leading away from God’s wisdom. So, if we’re going to overcome, we need to pray without ceasing, meditate on God’s Word, worship Him, and obey His teachings. If we ignore or slack in these areas, we will be left most vulnerable to the enemy and susceptible to his attacks.

Today, examine your own challenges and burdens on the field and off. Are you trying to solve them on your own without God, or are you trusting Him to bear your burdens and work out the situation?

If you truly believe His Word, you can believe that He’ll redeem any situation for your good (Romans 8:28). He loves you and is worthy of your trust. Think about it.

So, What’s The Play Call?

Cast your burdens on the Lord, and He will sustain you; He will never permit the righteous to be moved. (Psalm 55:22)

  1. How are you handling your present challenges?
  2. What would it look like for you to give all of your burdens to God?
  3. Do you trust God to redeem your situations for good? Why or why not?
  4. Do you consistently spend time in prayer, reading His Word, and in worship? Do you obey His Word? Why or why not?
