I cannot bear these burdens alone

In my distress He kindly will help me

He ever cares and loves His own

Some towns, this city is.

This is a share, Bradley Junior welcoming you to another broadcast of the Baptist Bible Hour. We'll be continuing today with the message and title. I must tell Jesus the realization that our burdens are too great for us to carry and we need help that we need to go to. The Lord is the first step in the right direction. The one to whom we need to tell about our burdens is Jesus Christ, who is the great burden bearer. I prayed the message will be a blessing to you today.

And then they embarked upon their travels that will finish.

How does this host to people going to be cared for? How they're going to be fed out in a wilderness place? God cared. He rained down manna from heaven.

Even when they complained about the manner he gave them quail also to eat. He cared for them and then they were without water.

And the people obviously could not survive without something to drink. And God brought water out of Iraq.

It came to Meira, to the bitter waters. And Moses passed a tree into the waters and they became sweet. God cared for his people.

And then in the days of Elijah, the prophet prayed that there might not be rain for three and a half years. As a result, there was a famine. But God cared for his prophet. God shed the Ravens to feed him.

They brought him both bread and meat.

God cared for him.

I believe God can supply the needs of his people. No matter how desperate their circumstances. He sent the Ravens to feed a. And then Elijah comes upon a woman, a widow who has a son, and she's getting ready to make the last piece of bread that she could make out what she had. And, oh, Hatcher says, make one for me. First. That seemed a little out of the ordinary, but this was a test of faith.

And she made him the cake and then made it for her son and herself.

And from that day forward, the barrel of meal did not exhaust itself and the crews of all did not run dry.

There was a sufficiency because he cares. He cares.

Come to the New Testament and we'd say, Jesus went to the pool of Siloam, blessed a man who had been waiting for 38 years with the idea that when the waters were troubled, if somebody would put him in, that he would be relieved of his difficulty. And Jesus cared for the man and healing that man got up and walked.

Jesus cares then want to take time to read this account in Mark Chapter for.

The disciples. We're on the sea.

And they asked Jesus as the storm was raging. Wind blowing fiercely, tossing the little ship about Mark 438 Master Karris. Now, not that we perish.

And that may be your question from time to time when you're on the restless sea of life and you're being tossed about and the winds are blowing in the field, you're in a great storm. And you ask, well, what do you not care?

Harristown down, up that we perish.

And he arose and rebuked the wind and said into the sea. Peace be still. And the winds cease.

And it was a great car. My. What a miraculous experience, what it must have meant to those man to see the power of Jesus, that he could control the wind.

He could cause the storm to cease instantly. That was a great car.

Jesus cares.

And then in the Book of Luke, Chapter 18, I read, beginning with the thirty fifth verse. And it came to pass.

And she was come nigh on to Jericho, a certain blind man shot by the wayside, begging and hearing the multitude pass by.

He asked what it meant. And they told him that Jesus of Nazareth, passionate love that expression. Jesus of Nazareth passing by.

What a what a beautiful time.

And he cried saying, Jesus, now, son of David, have mercy on me. And they which went before rebuke to him that he should hold his peace. But he cried so much. The more thou of David have mercy on me. And Jesus stood and commanded him to be brought to him. And when he was come near the ASTM saying, What will thou shall do unto the. And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight. And Jesus said to him, receive my sight. That faith has saved the.

And immediately he received his sight and followed him, glorifying God. And all the people when they saw it gave praise under God.

A glorious experience. This man couldn't be stopped.

Some tried to hush him up. No, no, no. I must cry. I need help.

Catch his burden on Jesus. And Jesus healed.

Think about the account in the Gospel of John, Chapter four, when it said I must needs go through Sumeria. It was completely out of the ordinary for a Jew to go to Samarra and particularly to visit with a Samaritan. But the Samaritan woman comes and Jesus speaks to her and gives her water superior to that which was in Jacob's well.

Oh, how he cared. Cared enough to go out of his way.

Cared enough to break all the standards of the time to have conversation with a woman and with a Samaritan at that because he came to change her life. And then we think about the woman that came in off the street when Jesus was in the house of Simon, the Pharisee. She found out his feet and began to weep.

Simon was sitting there observing it and thinking, if this man was Sue, he claims to be he would know this is a wicked woman who wouldn't allow it.

But Jesus cared for this woman. She took the hair of her head and wiped the tears from his feet. And Jesus pardoned her and said, the one who is forgiven most loves most Jesus care for a fallen woman that the Pharisee would have thrown out of his house.

Jesus. Cares. Jesus.

Came to the grave where LaForce had been laid, his family and friends. We're in deep grief. And Jesus wept. Jesus cared. He went with them.

But then you say Lazarus come forth and Lazarus, who had been dead for days, got up and was alive today.

He's coming back and he's going to speak with a mighty voice. And the dead in Christ shall rise first. They'll come out of the grave.

Their bodies glorified to be with him, live with him forever. Jesus was on the cross die for sinners, the thief next to him says, remember, may have come up here to that kingdom.

A beautiful display of the grace of God. How could this man know that the one who next to him was also dying was indeed a king?

That he had a kingdom, that he got to help him. And he said, remember me? And Jesus said this day. Chuck, how big with me in paradise.

Jesus cares.

And then there was a man named Saul of Tarsus, a religious man, a self-righteous Pharisee who was putting forth all of his effort to destroy the church, put Christians to death.

Jesus cared for me and he cared enough to speak his voice loudly enough for all to hear it on the road to Damascus. Saul, Saul, why persecute us to help me?

Who are the Lord? He said, I'm Jesus. Whom thou? Persecutors.

And you know the story. Saul became Paul the apostle.

So this is a faithful saying and where they've all acceptation that Christ Jesus came into the world the same centers have whom I am chief.

He love the message of grace, who preach the gospel. We preach Jesus Christ and him crucified.

And then Peter.

Who, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, penned these words in our texts.

Very well knew from experience that Jesus cares.

Jesus had healed his mother in law when she was sick.

When he met with Peter and he'd been fishing and caught nothing.

Jesus said, launch out into the deep set, let down the net. And Peter was hesitant. He thought if there were any fish out there, he would've had them. But this time, he said nevertheless. If I were, I let down the net.

And there were so many fish. It almost caused the boat to sink.

Jesus cares, and Peter knew it because it was his experience.

On another occasion, Peter needed money to pay the taxes and Jesus says, go out fishing. And the first fish you catch. Open up his mouth. And there we money and sight. And you use that to pay the taxes. Peter Who Jesus cares. He just pushed him to walk on the water.

I didn't walk long because he's got his hands off.

Jesus come again to look at the water and started to sink and he prayed a quick prayer, Lord save me or I perish. Sometimes people like to make long introductions before they get to the point. Peter didn't have time for an introduction.

Wait a little longer than under the walker.

Lord save Mirah Parish and the Lord rescues him. And then Peter cut off the ear of the high priest servant.

And could well have been killed by the mob because of his action. Jesus took care of that and put the air back on and heal them.

Jesus cares. And then in Acts Chapter twelve, Peter was put into prison and the Lord sent an angel to delivering, Peter then could indeed cite us casting all your care upon him for.

He Karith for you.

Peter knew it very well. And the fact is he does care. Even when our desires are not realized, a person may say, well, I'd like to believe that. But I've had too many times that I've I've prayed and I wanted to believe he cares. But things just didn't turn out like I wanted them to. But he continues to care even when we don't understand the situation.

Some 142 verse one, I cried into the Lord of my voice with my voice under the lower. Did I make my supplication poured out my complaint before him. I showed before him my trouble. When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then bound newish my path in the way wherein I walked. Have they privily later snare for me. I looked on my right hand and beheld. But there was no man that would know me. Refuge fail me. No man cared for my show.

Never been there. It's just like. Nobody understands. Nobody really cares.

Just seems that those who are closest to us with the tides of nature are like they're distance. No man cared for my soul.

I cried under the Lord. I said, thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living. So the point is that where we cast our care upon him, it may be that our immediate circumstances do not change. But when we come to understand he is our refuge. Thou art my refuge and I portion in the land of the living. It gives us a whole different outlook.

If I have Jesus, I have everything.

If I have him, who is the friend that's tickets, punches and a brother, if I have no other friends?

It'll be all right to have him all as well. Sometimes the trial continues on and on.

And we pray just like Paul prayed, Lord, deliver me from the thorn in the flesh. David Thorn in the flesh is painful. We don't know specifically what this was. But the passion who had a close walk with the Lord prayed earnestly. And it's in order for us to pray. If we've got a painful situation, if it's bodily pain, if it's sickness, if it's affliction, if it's spiritual struggles, whatever that may be, there's nothing wrong with praying. Lord could move for the Lord. Lord. Bring this situation to a conclusion. Help it to be delivered from this painful circumstance in which I'm currently struggling. But what was God's answer by quarter? Remove the forehead. But I do care. Because my grace is sufficient for. My grace is sufficient. So even while it hurts, even while you're bearing the form, you're not alone. I'm giving you grace, sufficient grace.

There's Grace. When a loved one dies. We're sure that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. That can be. One of the most painful circumstances in life. When a husband or wife. Her child. It shouldn't be taken away. First special only for 18 says where for comfort one another with these words, the Lord cares. So he's given us words to comfort us. What are those words? He says the Lord's coming back and the dead in Christ should rise first and then we remain to be caught up together with them on the air.

And so shall we ever be with the Lord.

What greater comfort could you have?

That he cares. In that moment. Of deep sadness when a loved one is taken away. And who cares when the greatest trial? Comes her way, whatever it might do.

You can't say, well, I know that there are a lot of promises in the Bible, but I don't know that there's one that specifically suits my case.

But we read in Romans Chapter eight and see how broad the scope of God's love and his faithful care for us.

Thirty six, as it is written, for my sake, we are killed all the day long. We are counted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay and all these things, we are more than conquerors through him that loved us for.

I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other creature shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus, our Lord that covered all nothing else.

You can interject there and say, Well, the writer overlooked this.

Whether it's things present, whether it's things future. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing on this earth. Nothing in Hallett's shouts. Nothing can separate us from the love of God. Understanding that cast all your care upon him. Far he cared for you.

And then never a failure. It always scares. He's kept every promise, he supplies every need.

Therefore, every care should be cast upon. Cares of the day, the president cares. Even the past cares.

Things that come up and you look back at the past and you grieve over some circumstance that you cannot change.

You catch that on him and you have some apprehension about the future. Cash that care pony little cash. A council of the lady one time who was distressed about many things. And I talked to her about casting her care on the Lord. She said, oh, I wouldn't want to bother the Lord with this. It seems so insignificant, I wouldn't want to bother him.

That's bothering you if it's bothered you. He's interested because he loves you. He cares for you. You cast your little cares. You'll have enough little cares. And after a while, you become a big, big, big chair. So you cast your little care and you cast your big cares upon him.

Keres. About a troubled marriage. Satan is attacking. Families today. And even among Christians, there's a lot of marital trouble. Cast your care upon him. Challenges with children. Hassan.

When you see children that have been brought up in a Christian home and then in their teenage years become rebellious.

The burden you have for children. Catch TrĂ³caire on him. The concern you have in the workplace. The burden you have for those you're praying for. Sometimes I'm trying to.

Look at the list of names I have written down and then think of others that I need to pray for.

Burden. His overwhelming. But I have to show Lord.

My arm is too short. I can't reach them. I can present the message. I can preach the gospel. I can give a loving admonition that only you can put it in their heart. Only you can change them. Often just say, Lord. This burden is too heavy. When I think about the details of so many people's lives that are stress and distorted and troubled by people going down the wrong path. Oprey. Lord, help me to be diligent in trying to minister, but to No. It takes the blessing of your Holy Spirit.

I've told you before that I frequently pray, Lord, give me opportunity to minister to somebody where I can help them shape me from those I can't. And the more I pray that prayer, the more often I'm given opportunity to talk to people. I was stopped in a rest area the other day and. And I didn't even see him follow that I got in the car and he knocked on the window, open the door. He said. I'm stranded. I need some money to buy gasoline. Josh, get out of the car. I said, well, do you have a job? He said, yes, but he gave me some set of circumstances that it caused him at this moment to be with money, to buy gasoline, to get where it needed to go. I said, well, I see you've got a job. You've got a cell phone, too. You've got some money somewhere. Well, again, you know, there's an excuse. Well, let me ask you, I thought I might as well ask upfront, do you have a problem with drugs? No, we didn't. Of course, I know that doesn't mean that which truth, Lancer? But I was trying to get back to some basics to begin with. I said, what do you know, the lower. I said, I want to tell you about what the scriptures say concerning salvation. And he started telling me about some of this long, detailed stuff that the group teaches about what the Sichel in the Book of Revelation means and what that means to America. I said, though, what's the bottom line of that?

If you if what you're saying is true, what am I supposed to do? What are we supposed to do? I said, you're right. You're caught up in all these details. And what I'm talking about is you. Where do you where do you stand today? Well, I believe all this is important. Let's say it is. There's nothing more important than no one where you go and when you die.

And the only way you can know that is acknowledging you're a sinner and that Jesus is the savior and you're trusting him. I gave him a little money. Sometimes I think people look at me at the common A.T.M. machine.

Everywhere I go, people are asking me for money. I looked at my watch. I said, all right, I got a little book here. Gave him a book. Some things you need to know about God does that. You read that. And in 15 minutes, I'm coming on the radio. So you known at 11, 60 on the dot. And listen to me preach. Now, whether it be and I don't know. But at least I had opportunity to speak to.

But I could go on to the whole list where God's given me opportunity to speak to somebody stranger that I didn't even know. And blessed me to give a witness of the gospel. But I think about those that I do know, those that I know a lot about. And the burden is heavy, casting all your care upon him.

God provides just what is needed. He gives comfort that we might not despair history.

Good to know that he had identifies himself in scripture as being the god of comfort.

He gives you hope that you will not give up. And he identifies himself in scripture as being the god of hope. And he gives you grace to help show that you can do what needs to be done and infrastructure. He identifies himself as being the God of all grace.

Cast your care on him because he give the comfort and the hope and the grace that we so desperately need. What a blessing to come to Jesus and test your care on him no longer being gripped by worry and anxiety. But if you're one who's never believed on Jesus. You have no one to whom you can take your care. And unburden yourself and believe that they can really help you. May you come to him today about faith test on him?

The burden of saying if you've been convicted of the fact that you're a sinner, the good news is the gospel of Jesus came to save shares, cast your burden of shame on him, for there's hope.

In Jesus.

I hope that the message has been a blessing to you. And as always, I want to emphasize the importance of this hearing from you, our listeners, that we can remain on this station. Our address is the Baptist Bible, our box 17 037, Cincinnati, Ohio, four five two one.

So that we greet you next time. This is share Bradley Junior, bidding you goodbye and may God bless you.

They don't stand to see those a myself.

Really, this is based on crazy. May I say that again? Well, they say it's nice still be here.

This may sound crazy, but I say Bill. Oh, what a day.

He said the South always has.

And watching and waiting to be murky.

This is not a student news media is being used by the media.

This is my son raising my say.

Oh, yes.

Oh, really? This is my son raising my stand. Crazy, my crazy eyes. Oh.
