Pastor Taiwo @Sunday service
In continuation of his admonition to believers from 1 Peter 5:7-8, Pastor Taiwo at the May 3 Sunday service said that believers who worry unnecessarily are disrespecting God because it reveals their uncertainty in God’s power to save, deliver or rescue. “To allow worry to rule your life is to belittle God,” he said.
Speaking from Genesis 18:14, Matthew 11:28-29, Luke 1:28-37 and Matthew 9:28-29, he said that nothing is too hard for God, noting that this is the reason believers need to trust Him totally to bring to pass whatever His promise is to them. “It may be hard for men but not with God. Jesus has the ability to remove your burdens and turn them to joy and celebration. So cast your burdens on Him and watch what He would do with them,” he said.
He then urged them from Ephesians 3:20 not to get distracted by their burdens but to rather trust God and focus on Him because He has what it takes to deliver and take care of them. “The issue is not God’s ability, because He’s always eager to help you, but your ability to trust Him and cast all your burdens on Him. There’s nothing deficiency in God’s ability to handle our burdens, just trust Him,” he urged.
CAST YOUR BURDENS ON JESUS
Pastor Taiwo @Thursday showers
Pastor Taiwo has further urged believers to cast their burdens on Christ because it alleviates unnecessary challenges from their lives. He said this at the April 30 Thursday showers. According to him, casting one’s burdens on the Lord gives them peace, joy, longevity and health, noting that it is God’s responsibility to take care of burdens cast on Him.
In his words, “Whatever we cast on Him ceases to disturb us. So if you’re still having worries, it means you’ve not cast your burdens on Him. It’s your duty to cast burdens on Him and it is His duty to take care of them.”
Speaking from 1 Peter 5:7, Proverbs 12:25 and Luke 12:19-20, Pastor Taiwo said that human beings always find it difficult to cast their burdens on God because of their sense of self-sufficiency, arrogance, and pride. This, he noted, would yield to anxiety which would get them to drown in their problems. “Anxiety is dangerous and it kills,” he said.
He urged them to cast their care on God because that’s the path to finding solutions to their challenges. He said, “Nothing is too small nor too big to talk to Him about. No matter how hopeless the situation is, remember that God’s thought for you is to give you hope and future. God has a good ending for you, so believe He will take you there.”
