The LORD replied, “I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you rest—everything will be fine for you.” Exodus 33:14 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Matt. 11:28
There is a place in all of us that longs for true rest. When you feel physically, spiritually and emotionally drained, the Lord says come to Him. When you feel weighed down by life, your hurts and pains, or feel like you’ve reached your breaking point, place your hope in God.
God’s rest means that you lean on Him completely and allow Him to support you and prop you up on every leaning side. With God you have access to all the peace you need and desire. This week try laying down all your concerns at the feet of God. Give Him the heavy burden you’ve been carrying. You were not designed to be weighed down. Let God be your heavy lifter. He can carry you and all that concerns you.
Rest is God’s gift to you; receive it with open arms. Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon
