Matthew 11:28-30 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me. For I am meek and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.[a] 30 For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.”
In the world today, life presents us with so many issues that cause people everywhere, including those in the church to feel beat down, worn out, stressed, worried, tired and weary.
In the hustle and bustle of life, we all deal with issue that tries to weight us all down to some degree. But, in spite of them, God offers us hope on today. Hope in knowing that He is still in control of everything, He can be trusted, He is a restorer of all things, He has a plan for our lives and He has the power to do anything that needs to be done in and through us.
Whatever the cause is for your need of spiritual rest, God is inviting you to that place of rest for your weary soul on today. “REST” that is not found in anything or anyone else but HIM.
The call to true "REST" is only found in the saving of our souls.
As humans, we have a tendency to look to other people and places first and use God as a last resort, but God is saying to us on today that He is our first and only option to true rest for our souls. Nothing and no one in this world can give you the peace and rest you seek but God. Everything else is temporary and will require you to have need of it again on tomorrow.
There is a “PROMISED” place of peace and quietness that Jesus is invites all to come. This place is called “Salvation” through Christ Jesus alone.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;6 in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
The invitation is to “COME, TAKE AND LEARN”.
COME- unto me all ye who are labor and heaven laden and I will give you rest.
TAKE- my yoke upon you. The world system says to carry your own burdens, but Jesus says to exchange yours for mine. 2 Corinthians 5:21 God made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
LEARN- of me. Having a personal relationship with Christ will change our lives. When we enter into a personal relationship with Him by faith, we are then able, through prayer, meditation and study of His Word, to learn about His nature. We learn that He is meek and lowly in heart. In other words, He is gentle and humble in nature.
Oh what an invitation on today that Christ offers to all who would “Come” and trust Him by faith.
He promises that if we come, He will give us rest from the struggles, worry, stress, sorrow and sins of life.
He promises to receive us and not condemn us.
In need of rest for your weary soul on today? Jesus is the answer!
God bless you.
