Matthew 11:28-Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Are you tired, weary and burdened? If your answer to this question is yes, God is calling you to a place of rest in Him.
The invitation to the weary heart and soul on today is to "come". Coming to Jesus is the first step to receiving your much needed rest from the cares of this old world.
There are so many things in life that tries to attach itself to us in it's attempt to bring about stress and burdens. Things like emotional stress, financial burdens, sorrow, grief, sickness, diseases, pain and of course guilt from sin.
Regardless of what your burden may be on today, Jesus is able to give you rest from it.
The invitation today is to "come" and the promise on today is "rest."
As you and I know, the world is full of restlessness, disappointment, weariness, unfulfilled promises and of course, emptiness. Why? Because many are trying to find the much needed rest for their souls in things of this world which all brings about only a temporary means of satisfaction or rest.
Jesus offers everlasting rest to the weary on today to all those who are willing to come to Him. There is no cost for this rest. It is a free gift from God to you.
Will you come to Jesus on today for your much needed rest from this weary and burdened down world? I know you are tired, weary and burdened. You no longer have to carry the cares of the world on your shoulder. Jesus calls you to cast them upon Him for He cares for you.
God is able to do in our lives just what He promises because He is a faithful God. What He speaks, He will do.He is not a man that He should lie, shall He say it and not do it?
Jesus says in Luke 21:33-Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. God is not a man that He should lie, nor the son of man that He should repent. Shall He say it and not perform it?
Our God is the "Sovereign" God. He has all power in heaven and on earth.
Are you happy apart from Christ? Be honest! I know you are not.
If you do as Christ commands you to on today, you will find "joy" unspeakable, but most of all you will find everlasting rest and peace which can be found in none other than Christ. Money can not buy it, fame can not cause you to earn it, you can not inherit it, you can only receive it by letting go of pride and coming to Jesus.
Will you "come" to Jesus on today? He bids you to come and He guarantees you that when you do, "rest" in His promises are yours forever.
To the weary on today, Jesus says "COME".
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for being our rest in a weary land.
