Matthew 11:28-30 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
As humans, we are not equipped to carry all the cares of the world on our shoulders. I encourage you today to take rest in the Holy Spirit, our Father. Many times we carry the heavy burdens of our stressful jobs, home environment, school, family issues, relationships, or friendships and we forget that God is the Father of Peace. In Matthew 11:28-30, the Lord declares that we must come to Him with our cares and we WILL find rest for our souls. God is strong and mighty and able to carry our burdens. We must trust and have faith that He can do the impossible on our jobs, in our homes, and in our relationships.
Here’s a prayer to use today as you seek rest in the Lord and from your situation:
Dear God, I pray that I continue to seek your Face and not your hand. Lord, I pray to continue to rest in your everlasting peace. God bless me with a peace of mind, a peace in my heart, and a peace over every aspect of my life. Lord, I love and I thank you for reassuring me that I can come to you as your child and rest in your arms. In your arms, I am safe, in your arms I am made new. In your arms I find peace.
In Jesus Name,
