Hello Amazing Reader,
We’re gradually counting up to the second half of 2021; glory to God.Does this get you excited, burdened or worried?
Today’s post is particularly dedicated to those who are burdened by anything whatsoever. It could be your job, finances, the economic situation, your children, spouse, parents. You seem to have explored every possible option, yet the dots won’t just connect. Jesus is asking that you come, because it’s only in Him you can find rest.
These situations have the tendency of making one desert God, while seeking solutions. But, this is all part of the devil’s ploy to get us farther away from the rest we desire.
Matthew 11:28 (The Passion Translation) states, “Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis.”
The New International Version reads, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
The Amplified Bible states, “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavily burdened [by religious rituals that provide no peace], and I will give you rest [refreshing your souls with salvation.]“
“I am ready to come to God, but I don’t know how?” You ask. You could begin by sincerely letting God know how feel in prayer. Other ways are through worship, meditating on the word of God, and so on.
Welcome to your season of rest.
