“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
In my quiet time I was led to this very familiar passage and I feel in my spirt that some of you are weary and are carrying heavy burdens and need to hear this word. There are so many things that can get us down. Long hours at work or maybe not enough hours, strained relationships, financial difficulties, medical conditions, emotional stress, family responsibilities or a myriad of other things that can over burden us. But Jesus wants you to find a resting place in His presence right in the middle of our worries.
Why would He want to handle our burdens? Because He loves us and doesn’t want us living in bondage. His invitation is given out of love, and we never have to fear coming to Him.That’s who He is; that’s how He operates—He loves us no matter who we are or what we’ve done. God will energize, encourage, motivate, and equip us as an expression of His love for us. When He bears our load, we don’t have to worry about it. There’s nothing that He cannot handle—no pressure so heavy that He can’t lift it off our shoulders. He daily enables us to live with our burdens without feeling the weight of them. So come to Him and surrender. Today, instead of letting your worries make you weary, respond to His invitation and come to Him -. He will comfort you, He will guide you, He will give you rest.
