Burden Bearing Is A Gift

Aug 28, 2008
In Isaiah 1:14, God states that the Israelites New Moon festivals had become a burden to him and he was weary of bearing them. God refers directly to his nature of bearing burdens here. To those who suffer through Burden Bearing, do not despair, even the Lord got weary in Burden Bearing, but more on this later. In Genesis 6:5-6 we see aspects of God's heart. He was grieved and filled with pain because of the people's wickedness and the thoughts of their hearts were evil all the time; God was carrying burdens of their sin. In Exodus 3:7 we see God talking to Moses and God says to Moses that he has seen the misery of his people and is concerned about their suffering. In Exodus 28:36-38 we see that God sets up in the Temple aspects of his nature of Burden Bearing in the regulations of the High Priest to bear burdens of guilt.

The Lord reveals that people also carry burdens. We are created in the image of the God, which is an amazing thought. What we consider spiritual gifts are aspects of God's nature; more on this later. The gift of Burden Bearing is an aspect of God's nature. Scripture has also revealed that mankind also deals with this gifting, though we have not realized or understood it.

Sometimes a Burden Bearer will try to walk out a person's bad stuff; they may also try to walk out their good stuff also. Have you ever noticed that when you are around an evangelist you have this feeling you want to evangelize? This may not be yours. You can have a synergistic effect with the person and magnify his gifting, you may even be able to walk in that gifting, yet what is happening is that your gifting of Burden Bearing is in operation. You are so much in sync with the person that you are walking in their giftings. Yes, this can get confusing, but not if you stay in His presence and only do what He wants you to do, and release a person's good and bad stuff to the cross with only the good stuff going back to them, hopefully with an added blessing.

A Burden Bearer that is full of icky stuff can also pass that stuff to other people, if the Burden Bearer is not walking in holiness and not praying that the connection between him and the other person is being purified through the cross. What happens is that the Burden Bearer becomes defiled and so he or she defiles all that they come in contact with.

The gift of Burden Bearing is a powerful gift and the devil hates its operation in a self sacrificing cross bearing Christian. But, he will use it to spread stuff to others if he can't destroy the Christian. Like a sink that is meant to wash dishes, if the dishwater is not changed then it just defiles all the dishes that are processed through it; especially if the water has not been changed for weeks, months, or years. I recommend cleansing prayers as often as possible, yet at least three times a day, before your morning and even sacrifice, and then just before bed. This will be wonderful refreshing and cleansing and allow you to better discern what you are picking up during the day.

Keys to understanding what you are going through at a specific time are to know and describe what you are feeling at a specific time and how these feelings appeared. Were you just outside and saw a stranger and all of a sudden you are angry? A key is looking back through the last fifteen minutes to see who you were just around. Also to pray and see if anyone comes to mind. If you see a person whether you know them or not, the Lord may be showing you a picture of who you are connected to. Most burden Bearers can tell what other people are feeling, yet cannot tell what they are feeling at any given time. Writing down and/or discussing your feelings and giving names to those feelings will greatly help you to know what you are going through, determine when you have pick up something, what you have picked up, and greatly help you to process those emotions. Sometimes God gives a Burden Bearer clues as to what they are picking up through physical sensations in their body. As for me personally, when I leave someone and my chest starts constricting and I am having a hard time breathing, I immediately start asking the Lord about anxiety in that person's life. (As a note: if you are having medical conditions that require medical treatment do go to see your doctor, emergency room, or medical professional. Always continue with all Medical Professionals treatments and instruction).

A Burden Bearer can pick up many things at one time and from many different people. To give you some examples a Burden bearer may all of a sudden be in a state of confusion. Many times I have left someone's house and then not know how to get home. I know I am to take a right here and a left there, but I can't remember anything but where I am to turn next; I always get home though. When I notice this I seek the Lord on whom and what I am to pray for them. The person may have a spirit of confusion on them, they may need understanding as to where the next step in their way to God's heart is, or they may be in confusion as to where their relationship with God is at.

All these things I have described can effect a Burden Bearer, but also may not affect certain Burden Bearers, for we all have things in common, but we all have things that are different in how we personally walk out this very wonderful gift of the nature of God called Burden Bearing.

All praise and glory be to God's wonderful love, who is willing to weep with those who weep and is willing to help us carry the things that are too heavy for us, according to his wonderful love that was demonstrated through Christ's death on the Cross. To this demonstration of love is what the Burden Bearer is called; to carry the heart of God, by carrying his or her cross, and interceding for the transgressions according to God's will.

Grace and peace to you.
