Find the Time to Rest In Him
January 11, 2021
Matthew 11:28-30 (KJV)
28 "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 "Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 "For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
These verses describe the state that we find a lot of men and women all around the world in today. Stressed out to the max with all this covid stuff, and the threat of war that hovers over us. We must make a positive move toward Christ in order to find the rest we so desperately need.
When Jesus made this statement here He saw how the religious leaders of that day would heap up spiritual duties for the people to perform. These same leaders could not, or would not, keep them but would impose them on the people. These rulers were a burden.
Luke 11:46 (NASB)
46 "But He said, “Woe to you lawyers as well! For you weigh men down with burdens hard to bear, while you yourselves will not even touch the burdens with one of your fingers."
Thank You, Father, for Your word says that Your yoke is easy and Your burden is light. For those that are in a constant, weary and burdensome situation, You help them find rest for their soul. Help us find that place of peace and rest. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember the best is yet to come.
