Bible verses about burdens
Some Christians though they say they’re weak they think they are strong. If you are carrying a heavy burden in your life, why not give it to the Lord? If you’re not praying about it obviously, you think you are strong. If God gives you burdens, then He expects you to give them back to Him.
He expects you to trust in Him. God says He will give us so many things, so why have we stopped taking up His offers?
Through prayer I have received everything God has promised me.
Whether it be wisdom, peace, comfort, help, etc. God has done what He said He would do in trials.
Try it! Run to your prayer closet. If you don’t have one find one.
Tell God what’s going on and say, “God I want your peace. I can’t do this on my own.” Say, “Holy Spirit help me.”
God will take the load off your back. Remember this, “if one of you fathers is asked by his son for a fish; he will not give him a snake instead of a fish, will he?” Stop doubting! Set your mind on Christ instead of your problem.
