Verse Ref.:
Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures.
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

About This Product

After a hotel fire in Miami Beach, some of the survivors were talking together. One said, “I couldn’t sleep last night. No way!” Another said she hadn’t been able to sleep either. “I want peace of mind,” she said. “Where do you buy it?”

Probably the next step would be a trip to the drug store to buy sleeping pills, the great American panacea. Statistically, Americans take more than thirty million sleeping pills every day. Thirty million pills—the equivalent of six heaping truckloads of little tablets, to purchase a little sleep. But peace of mind cannot be bought.

A health officer, deploring the use of pills to cure sleeplessness, said, “Few persons realize that insomnia is largely a symptom of some underlying disturbance which should be corrected.”

In most cases, the “underlying disturbance” is worry. We are living in such a fast and confusing age that it is difficult— if not impossible—to keep up and do all that is expected of us. Nor are conditions at home or abroad conducive to peace, confidence and safety.

The remedy is simple and certain, but it cannot be bought. The prophet of old said of the Lord, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee” (Isaiah 26:3). The mind of the average person is so cluttered with philosophies, panaceas and cure-alls that he has not the faintest idea what it is to trust in the Lord. It sounds so strange, so foreign, to be told that the Lord Himself took a body of flesh, blood and bones in order to be seen, heard and handled by His creatures. In Christ Jesus we actually have “God . . .manifest in the flesh” (1 Timothy 3:16).

That is why He spoke as no other man ever spoke and worked as no other man has worked. His greatest work, of course, was His redemptive death on the cross. “Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures.”

We have all sinned, and sin is enough to make any conscientious person worry, but worry in this matter is of no avail. Forgiveness of sins is to be had by placing faith in Him who died for us. “Whosoever believeth in Him shall receive remission of sins.” He also rose again from the dead and now lives to care for us. He is vitally interested in every detail of our lives. He knows that the trials of the day are too great a burden for us to carry, so He says, “Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee” (Psalm 55:22).

Now by trusting Him, not only for the forgiveness of our sins, but also to carry our burdens, perfect peace can be ours. Taking everything to Him in prayer, with thanksgiving, will fill us with the peace of God—the peace which passes understanding.

Thinking of Him and trusting Him to take care of us is vastly superior to trusting to sleeping pills to make us sleep. Won’t you trust Him now—right now!—and let Him give you perfect peace?
