May 14th – Mat 11:28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Today’s verse too, is sort of an extension of yesterday. We learnt yesterday to humble ourselves among our brethren. Today’s verse is to humble/yield to our savior.
We all live in a world of turmoil. we have many question; jobs, health, injustice and so on. And for a majority of those questions, we won’t be able to find the answers.
For those of us in Christ, we have an added advantage of submitting the unknown, into the hands of the “All Knowing”. Since our God is omniscient, we can rest our burdens in him.
In the next verse, the benefit of this is stated : rest for our souls.
As human beings, we want all our fears doubts to be resolved quickly, but that’s not a trait of a believer. Long suffering/Patience is!
So let us lift His yoke upon ourselves and learn from Him “to find rest“.
Cast your burdens unto Jesus,
for He cares for you.
Higher higher… Lift Jesus higher.
Lower lower… stomp satan lower
