Some people are called specifically to be burden bearers, and are given this gift from conception. The sensitivity that predisposes them to the gift also leads them to be too involved, bearing burdens in their flesh. They automatically leap to carry burdens, even before they know the Lord or become born again.
Burden bearers come to know Jesus better than those who do not respond to that call or those who do not have passion it. Until we begin to experience suffering for others, we cannot fully appreciate His eternal gift of redemptive suffering for us.
Burden bearing is a rare gift and is not common in most Christians, but is an essential ministry of a believer. Many wants to succeed first before others will, but there are few men who have taken it on themselves to make others succeed, knowing that in their successes, they derive ultimate fulfillment and their joy is complete.
Wounding occurs when the gift is not properly developed and disciplined. When the burdens are carried without the Holy Spirit the burden bearer will collapse under the weight of every body’s troubles. The more we bear the burden of others, the more we feel the weight and horror of sin, and thus the more we sense the price our Lord pays for our sin and redemption.
We are all to bear one another’s burdens, but some are especially called by the Lord to do so. But I personally encourage you to desire the gift of burden bearing, and explore the character and experience of the burden-bearing personality, including the wounding that occurs when the gift is misunderstood, misappropriated and unappreciated.
John 15: 12 – 13 [NASB] … “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this that one lay down his life for his friends.” Burden Bearers easily sense what others feel. They are highly sympathetic. They are usually creative. They are sensitive to environments and places. They occasionally know what a friend is feeling across a space of miles.
Burden bearers are prayerful people and spiritual, they tend to sense the need to effect a change or put things in order. The Holy Spirit according to this gift ministers to them especially to solve a problem or meet a particular need that arises. They are pillars and gate – keepers of a ministry, church, family, city and even a nation.
I have yielded myself to supply a need in prayer and in finances several times and it happens to meet the point of the need at the exact time. I pray for you today, that Father God will grant your special ability to bear burdens henceforth and the rewards will follow and not delay. Step out now and fulfil God’s plan and purpose for your life, for the time is short. GRACE TO YOUR HEART!
