"We must recognize the difference between burdens that are right for us to bear and burdens that are wrong. We should never bear the burdens of sin or doubt, but there are some burdens placed on us by God which he does not intend to lift off. God wants us to roll them back on Him - - to literally "cast your burden", which he has given you, "on the Lord". If we set out to serve God and do His work but get out of touch with him, the sense of responsibility we feel will be overwhelming and defeating. But if we will only roll back on God the burdens He has placed on us, He will take away that immense feeling of responsibility, replacing it with an awareness and understanding of Himself and His presence. Many servants set out to serve God with great courage and with right motives. But with no intimate fellowship with Jesus Christ are soon defeated. They do not know what to do with the burden, and it produces weariness in their lives. Don't caste it {your burden} aside, but put it over onto Him and place yourself there with it. You will see that your burden is then lightened by the sense of companionship."
