Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord and has made the Lord his hope and confidence.
Want to be blessed?
Give Him your burdens.
It doesn’t matter what you’ve done, where you’ve been, or how heavy your burdens. It doesn’t matter what you’ve brought upon yourself or others. Jesus wants to carry those burdens.
He died on the cross for those burdens.
He covered all your sin – past, present, and future – on that cross. He wants to take your sin and your burdens away – as far as the east is from the west! He wants to bury them in the deepest sea!
And He rose from the grave for those burdens.
If you’ll trust Him, He’ll save you and become your hope (everything you’ve anticipated) and your confidence (assurance – not in what you’ve done, but in what He’s done).
It’s a wonderful thing to trust Him and to let Him carry your burdens.
Just say a prayer, something like this: “Lord Jesus, I know that I’m a sinner, and I believe that you died on the cross for my sins. I believe that you rose from the grave. You are my savior!”
Please read Romans 10:8-13
