This message is for anyone who needs rest from their burdens that they are carrying. Are you soul weary? Are you having a difficult time seeing the light at the end of the tunnel? Is your heart heavy for someone right now? Do you just need a moment of rest, a moment to breathe, a moment to escape the downpour in your life? Jesus has the answer. He has made a way for you then just thank Him for always being there for us and giving us the rest we need to move forward.
“Come to me all you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” ~~Matthew 11:28
Do you ever feel like the world is crashing down around you? Like, if one more thing goes wrong you will collapse under the weight of it all? Where you are so stressed out, it just seemed like everything was going wrong. It really wasn’t, but it sure did feel like it was. This is a reminder that you are suppose to look to Him when you are weary, but with everything that was going on, it just seemed like you couldn’t. Does this make sense?
Have you ever felt that way or is that how you’re feeling at this moment? Where it seems like your life is all planned out for you and you don’t feel like you can live up to expectations. Or maybe it’s something different, but equally as weighty. It doesn’t matter what it is, Jesus calls us to come to Him when we are weary and burdened. We shouldn’t wait until it feels like we have the time, we need to make the time.
So do you feel weary or burdened at this moment? Just take a few moments to pray, or open your Bible and read His Word. As soon you do this and take that time today and turn to Christ you will feel so much better. You see, when we take that time to come to Him, He gives us rest. Right now, in the midst of that worry or issue or concern, the God of the universe is asking you to turn it over to Him. Let Him work it out in His timing and His perfect way. He lifts the weight off of our shoulders, and reminds us that it really is in His hands and that we need to trust Him. That doesn’t mean that everything will be downhill from there, it just reminds us that no matter how many bad things happen, He will never leave us or forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:8).
