Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28 NKJV
Rest…refreshing ease, tranquility, relief or freedom from things that trouble or bother you, mental or spiritual calm. These are all definitions of the word rest according to the dictionary and a lot of us are missing out on it!
In this Scripture, God promises rest to all those who come to Him. The problem is, some of us are avoiding God today and therefore are avoiding His peaceful rest. If you have been feeling heavy, worn, stressed, tired, just plain not right then may I encourage you to rest in God today. Spend a little more time in your word, in prayer, in silence, or journaling and allow for Him to minister to your soul. If you feel like you don’t have enough time to do this pray for God to open up your schedule. Don’t stress out about not getting everything done today, God will restore your time. I don’t know what has been keeping you from coming to Him but whatever it is, it’s not worth it!
Find your rest in Him. It’s necessary!
