“Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.” Ps. 55:22

One of my favorite translations of the Bible is Young’s Literal Translation; it puts the scripture in place English just as it was written in the original Hebrew or Greek.

Here is Ps. 55:22 from the YLT: “Cast on Jehovah that which He hath given thee, and He doth sustain thee.  He doth not suffer forever the moving of the righteous.”  

Give back to God the cares He has given you.  Wow, what a thought!

In the Gospel according to Matthew, chapter 14, Jesus told his disciples to feed 5000 people, but all they could find was a little boy’s lunch.  They had five pieces of bread and two fish!  Yet Jesus didn’t say, “Oh well, never mind.”  He said, “Bring them here to me.”

The theologian, A.B. Simpson, describes such moments of overwhelming difficulty and need as, “vessels for the Holy Spirit to fill.”

We simply bring these nearly empty cups (or lunch boxes) to Christ and allow Him to fill them.
