Release Your Faith: Cast Your Burden Upon The Lord
THE great man of God, Oral Roberts, founder of Oral Roberts University and the Apostle of Charismatic
Healing, Signs and Wonders once said: “it is not enough to have faith but our faith must be released specifically, tangibly and directly to God in our areas of need.” Jesus said when we have faith in God, then we can speak and address any mountain. Mark 11:22-23 “And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things, which he saith shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he saith.” Faith in God enables us to address our mountain of needs. Faith is indolent without a definite expression. Jesus tells us that God cares so much about insignificant lowly creatures. In Matthew 6:26 and 28 “Behold the fowls of the air, for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. ARE YE NOT MUCH BETTER THAN THEY? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow, they toil not, neither do they spin”. Jesus further shows us that God cares about birds of the air, lilies of the field and as such, He would not care less about us. We are created in the image and likeness of God. We are God’s Deputies and as such, we cannot be out of God’s radar of concern and care. God operates in faith and He wants us to touch Him by our faith.
Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith, it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” We are privileged to express our faith to God through various means – Prayer, Worship, Service, Tithing, Giving, Loving, Sowing, etc. Philippians 4:6 (Amplified) “DO NOT FRET OR HAVE ANY ANXIETY about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, BY PRAYER AND PETITION (DEFINITE REQUESTS), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.” In faith, we are required not to walk in Worry, Anxiety, Apprehension, Panic and Despondency. Philippians 4:7 (Amplified) “God’s Holy Word says in place of anxiety or worry, we are to make specific requests known to God Who will take care of our concerns, worries and challenges. One of the tangible ways of releasing our faith is by casting our cares upon the LORD. Today, God is waiting for us to cast “our burden on Him.” He, who carries the weight of the whole world, has the capacity to take care of our minute and ambiguous challenges. What is disturbing you today? Release your faith to God specifically in those areas of your NEEDS. As you go into God’s Presence in prayer, give your burdens to the LORD and leave them with Him by faith and do not carry them anymore. It shall always be well with you.
PRAYER: Father, I come to you today in the Name of Jesus, to cast my cares upon You. I refuse to worry, be apprehensive and hypertensive
