Matthew 11:28-30 NIV
28-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.
Are we struggling? Do we feel like we are barely keeping
our head's above water?
If we feel like we are struggling and striving just to make
it we need to turn to Jesus. He will give us rest.
If we say that we have turned to Jesus and we think
His yoke is hard and His burden is heavy, we may be deceived.
We need to cast our care on the Lord and learn of Him. So
many people are striving and struggling to get
God to love them when He already loves them and accepts them.
Living a successful Christian life is not done by our own
strength or willpower. It is the result of depending on the
Lord. Only He can do it.
Quit trusting in your plans and abilities and efforts, and
trust in Jesus instead. Turn things over to Him. Let Him be
Lord in your life.
We will learn of Jesus and trust in Him. Jesus is my Lord
and he alone gives me rest.
