Let me encourage you to read and memorize Matthew 11:28. Record it in your journal. Identity the areas in your life in which you need peace and rest. Make a list of burdens that you will lay down at His feet and leave there. When you are tempted to pick up one of those burdens, choose instead to meditate on and walk in the truths knowing that we can do nothing apart from Him and His power. Give Him your burdens, so He can give you rest.
“Then Jesus said, Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”~ Matthew 11:28.
Some days are harder than others. There are so many things that can get us down. Long hours at work, difficult relationships, financial difficulties, medical conditions, emotional stress and family responsibilities are just a few of burdens we tend to carry.
Jesus understands the burdens we carry. During His time on earth, Jesus healed the sick and set the captives free. He established the Church, sent the Holy Spirit to teach us and took His rightful place at the right hand of the Father. The church works on His behalf to help us. The Holy Spirit indwells us in order to guide and comfort us and Jesus Himself intercedes for us with the Father. So when Jesus said “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest,” He really meant it.
What burden do you have? What is weighing you down? Bring it to Jesus. He will comfort and guide you. He will give you 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.
Have a wonderful day in His presence. Please share this blog with everyone and may it bless them and bring them closer to the Lord!
