This world is broken and full of trouble. Yet God has given us an amazing command followed by a sweet promise in Philippians 4:6-7. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
George Mueller, an incredible man of prayer, was someone who followed God’s instruction on how to deal with the worries of life. In Mueller’s sermon “Freedom From Anxiety,” he exhorts Christians “to roll the burden, the whole burden, upon God.”
Scott Hubbard, editor at Desiring God, in his article “Roll Your Burdens Onto God” cites the life and ministry of Mueller for our example.
He writes: “As worry lures us to bear the burdens of a broken world upon our own broken backs, hear your Father’s constant invitation to come to broader shoulders. Draw near to him through Jesus 'with thanksgiving' (Philippians 4:6), and know that the God who bore yesterday’s worries is able to bear today’s as well. Take your burdens, one by one, and learn to roll them onto him.”
