What does it feel like to be carried? To carry means to transfer from one place to another, to sustain the weight or burden, or to gain victory for someone. I find comfort in the definition of this word, ‘Carry’!
Have you ever experienced what it feels like to be carried by someone, namely Jesus? If so, you know when it’s happening. You know what it feels like.
Often, we need to be carried by our Lord. There are particular situations in our lives that require Him to carry us. In times of grief and despair, afflictions hard to bear, in moments of deep pain and anguish and when our faith has disappeared.
Yes, He carries us. He sustains the weight of the burden we’re experiencing. He helps us to get from one place in the trial to another and He gains the victory for us that we could not gain for ourselves.
You know when you are being carried. When you start wondering how you got from one point to another during a most difficult situation, you were carried!
There are times when under the weight of a trial you feel utter helplessness and you beat up on yourself because you failed to trust Him, yet again. You wait for the Lord to scold you for your lack of faith or to show some displeasure in you, but it never comes. He is carrying you!
The Lord God never kicks us when we’re down! He is ever patient and compassionate! He knows full well where we’re at spiritually and emotionally. He knows just what is needed in those times. He sends the right person to minister to us. He sends the ‘Word’ that is appropriate for the situation. He lets us rest a while as He, Himself, ministers to our wounds. These are precious moments!
I know what it feels like to be carried! I have felt the comfort and understanding from the Lord that encouraged my heart even in the midst of grief and pain. I don’t mind being carried. His strength became my strength. In all of my weakness and failings, He made me strong. I rested securely in His arms while the storm and dark clouds hovered continually. I owned my nothingness, I owned my weakness and I surrendered to Him and He carried me until the storm blew over.
Let Him Carry You! Let Him Be Your Strength in the midst of the storm! You will find Him to be a loving, compassionate and understanding friend. He will minister to your needs and reveal Himself in a new way!
Let Him Carry You!
