In my quiet time this morning, I was enjoying the beautiful truth in Psalm 103:14. “For He knows our frame, He earnestly remembers and imprints on His heart that we are dust.” And I was thinking about what a comfort it is to know that The Lord knows that we aren’t “super humans”! He does not expect us to be. We are the ones who add (or have let others add) that weighty Super Hero cloak to our wardrobes – But that is not of God, our Creator.
He knows and holds it in His heart when He dwells on us (which is all of the time) that we are but dust. He knows our frame, knows what we are capable of doing, being, & carrying without becoming faint.
That’s why God gives us what I call “sweet release Scriptures”. These scriptures help us pry open our fingers when they are in a death grip of trying to control our circumstances. They are among my favorites in His Word, and I just felt led to share them today. If you are feeling like the weight of the world has been placed on your dust-made shoulders today, I’m praying for you right now, & asking that The One Who knows your frame & Who has imprinted you on His heart will help you release those burdens to His All Powerful, All Knowing, All Present, and All Loving arms. He is more than capable to wear the Superhero Cape today in your life. So the question is, my friends, will you let Him?
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]
Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls.
For My yoke is wholesome (useful, good – not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light and easy to be borne.”.
Matthew 11:28-30 (Amp)
“Roll your works upon The Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.”

Yes you are! And Yes you can! – As long as God is the One working in and through you today. :).
With love and prayers for you, your families and your lives~
