Bel boweth down, Nebo stoopeth, their idols were upon the beasts, and upon the cattle: your carriages were heavy loaden; they are a burden to the weary beast.
They stoop, they bow down together; they could not deliver the burden, but themselves are gone into captivity.
It’s easy for the things we love to become burdens and to weigh us down. ANYTHING that exalts itself above God is a problem in our lives. (2 Corinthians 10:5)
What is weighing YOU down?
Is it a person? A thing? A desire?
Set your sights on God; let the rest fade away. None of it will matter in the end when you stand before God. Those things that brought you comfort here on Earth will be gone. It will be between you and God alone.
Cast off those burdens that beset you now and go into the Promised Land free!
