Matthew 11:28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest.
CUMBER=To trouble; to be troublesome to; to cause trouble or obstruction in, as any thing useless.
Today, God is sending forth an invitation to the brokenhearted, wounded in spirit, the brokenhearted and the hopeless.
God’s call to you on today is to “come unto Me all who labor and are heaven burden and I will give you rest.”
Why should you answer God’s call to come to Him? You should do it for the burden you are trying to carry is too heavy for you and is causing you so much unnecessary pain and misery.
Believe it or not, but in the safety of the arms of Jesus is the only place where you can find true peace and rest for the mind, body, spirit and weary soul.
A yoke of “bondage” is heavy! A yoke is a restrictive harness, like the yoke over the shoulders of an ox. But, Jesus’ yoke is yoke is light and easy. His yoke is a a pathway to newness of life in the Holy Spirit, who is able to not only comfort you and give you rest, but also able to lead, guide and direct you into all truth, peace and rest in the here and now and in eternity with God in the future.
Jesus said His burden is “LIGHT”! When He lifts your burdens you are given added strength and energy to persevere, regardless of what comes against you for He promises to forever be with you.
Does “cumbered” describes your mental and spiritual condition on today? Is the cares of this world weighing you down and you don’t know which way to turn? You can look up and turn to Jesus for He is concerned about you and He want to help you.
I want to use the lyrics from an old songs that I often heard at my church growing up as a young girl and in looking back now, I believe that the saints of old sang those songs would usher them into the presence of Jesus and they would find hope, peace and relief from their heaven burdens that often beset them.
One of the songs i often heard was titled “He touched me”. Do you stand in need of a touch from Jesus on today?
The lyrics goes like this: Shackled by a heavy burden, Neath a load of guilt and shame. Then the hand of Jesus touched me, and now I am no longer the same. He touched me, Oh He touched me, and oh the joy that floods my soul! Something happened and now I know, He touched me and made me whole.
Since I met this blessed Savior, since He cleansed and made me whole, will never cease to praise Him, I'll shout it while eternity rolls. He touched me, Oh He touched me, and oh the joy that floods my soul! Something happened and now I know He touched me and made me whole.
Tired of daily pulling the load of the world’s cares along with you? Dr. Charles Stanley said “When everything is crumbling beneath us, we must remember that God’s Word is our true foundation.”
Cumbered with a load of care? What a friend we have Jesus who is able to carry all our sins and griefs which we do not have to bear. Oh, what a privilege it is to carry everything to Him in prayer. O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry EVERYTHING to God in prayer. Can we find a friend so faithful who will all our sorrows share? Jesus knows our every weakness so take it to Him in prayer.
Precious Savior, still our refuge; Take it to the Lord in prayer for it is in His arms where He will take and shield you. Yes, you will find solace there!
What trials, temptations, and troubles are you carrying today? What sins, grief, and needless pains are you bearing?
Come to me is the call of Jesus to you on today! You have tried everything the world has to offer so Jesus is calling you to try Him on today. Try His way of living and His way of doing and “I will give you rest” says Jesus.
The “rest” Jesus offers is better than rest you get from a night’s sleep for the rest Jesus offers is for our souls. Psalm 23:2 He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.
Whoever this message is for, I want you to know that on today, you have been given the opportunity to find rest for your weary soul.
Jesus is offering rest today for all who will come to Him. Here again is what He is speaking to your soul: “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heaven laden, and I will give you rest.”
I want to leave you with this thought: As of today, you no longer have to be cumbered with a heavy burden. Will you come and cast ALL of them upon Jesus for He will GLADLY take them ALL.
