“Cast your burden on the Lord–and He will sustain you.” Psalm 55:22
Cast your troubles where you have cast your sins. You have cast your sins onto Jesus–cast your troubles there also!
As soon as the trouble comes, quick, the first thing–tell it to your heavenly Father! Remember, that the longer you take telling your trouble to God–the more your peace will be impaired. The longer the frost lasts–the more likely the ponds will be frozen.
Oh! It is a happy way of smoothing sorrow, when we can cast your burden upon the Lord. Oh do not wear a ‘frown of concern’. Come, cast your burden upon the Lord.
I see you staggering beneath a weight which He would not feel.
What seems a crushing burden to you–would be nothing but a bit of dust to Him!
See! The Almighty bends His shoulders, and says: “put your troubles here!”
“Cast all your cares upon Him–because He cares about you!” 1 Peter 5:7

From Spurgeon’s sermon, “God in the Covenant”
Put this promise to your lips; – “I will be their God!”
Did ever harp or violin sound half so sweetly as this-
“I will be their God?”
Not all the music blown from sweet instruments,
or drawn from living strings, could ever give such melody
as this sweet promise- “I will be their God.”
Oh! here is a very sea of bliss, a very ocean of delight!
Come, bathe your spirit in it!
You may swim, aye, to eternity, and never find a shore!
You may dive to the very infinite and never find the bottom!
“I will be their God.”
Oh! this will make your eyes sparkle,
your foot dance for joy,
and your heart beat high with bliss!
