Daily Sustenance For Daily Burdens

Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
— Psalm 68:19

The American Standard version says, "Blessed be the Lord, who daily beareth our burden." And the Bible in Basic English says "who is our support day by day."

We so often collapse under burdens that we were never meant to bear. Praise the Lord that he will daily load Himself with our burdens so we do not have to carry them. 

The God of our salvation. Not just our salvation for eternity, but salvation for our daily lives. 

We have help from God on a day to day basis. For the Israelites, God provided daily manna. The manna came one day at a time as needed. Not more, not less. Not just every once in a while. Daily sustenance.  

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel who is still working for us daily. 

The Lord of heaven and earth, in all His majesty, supports our day to day lives. 

The King of The Universe is not some far off ruler, but an ever present helper. 

‘Think not thou canst sigh a sigh,
And thy Maker is not nigh;
Think not thou canst weep a tear,
And thy Maker is not near.’

He is near to you today. Believe it and bask in His presence. 

To Ponder:

Am I carrying burdens that I was never meant to bear?


God of my Salvation, I hand over all my daily burdens to You. Blessed be Your Name for sustaining me daily. For providing for all my needs. For blessing me with Your goodness. Thank You Father God.

 "I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever." Psalm 145:1
