“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Have you ever felt so much pain that you didn’t think you could physically go on? Have you ever felt so barraged with hurt after hurt that you became exhausted? Have you ever heard the saying, “When it rains, it pours?”
Jesus has too, and He wants to help shoulder your burdens. He wants you to take “His yoke” and learn from Him. Here is something incredible: Jesus is gentle with us! Another thing we learn from this verse, is that WE DON’T HAVE TO FACE OUR TROUBLES ALONE! Let God take part in your suffering. He wants to help you heal, and He wants to be there when you feel at your lowest. God is calling to you! Can you hear Him? If you can’t hear him, you need to turn down all the noise around you and listen carefully!
Do you desire some rest for your soul? I encourage you to please let Jesus into your heart. He will personally carry all of your hurts and your suffering so that you don’t have to do it alone.
In this day and age, you don’t have to surround yourself with a million fraudulent online friends and all the noise in this world. Disengage from electronics and noise, find a quiet place, and spend an hour with the Only One who can help you find true rest, the Only One who hurts when you hurt, and the Only One who will never leave you or let you down.
Read the verse again. Ask God how to help you surrender your burdens to Him today.
I surrender all to you today. Please help me learn to give You my burdens, and to take your light yoke in its place. Help me to get to know you better. Help me to be more like you: gentle, humble, patient. Help my soul to find rest in this weary world. Help me to give you all the glory and praise as I see you work in My life.
