Mathew 11:28 Come to me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
When we encounter setbacks and failure and thus feel sorrow and pain, God will heal the pain in our heart, and guide us to cast off hardship. Have you ever had a time in your life where you felt overwhelmed by the things of this world? Where life seemed so hard and no matter what you did, things just wouldn’t go right?
We are allowed to come to God personally; there is nothing between Him and us. The first thing that Jesus says to us is, “Come to Me…”. I know and very well remember that in my life when I tried to do everything with my own strength alone it did not turn out well.
God wants to set you free and give you rest from the torture you are under. God can take the addictions of your life if you let Him. For some people, it will be instant, and for others, it will be a process.
The COVID-19 has brought depression to many life’s. Depression robs you of the ability to enjoy life and not only hurts you mentally but physically as well. God wants you to live a full life and is able to heal your mind as you take those steps of faith to find His rest. Jesus makes an extraordinary offer to all who hear Him. Jesus gave an invitation to all- if you’re struggling and tired, I can give you relief.
Our burdens are not simple, they are not relieved by simplistic platitudes, but a simple promise can relieve a complex burden, provided we believe that the power behind the promise is complex and strong enough to relieve our heaviness.
Jesus does not give us “10 Ways to Relieve our Weariness,” like the motivational coaches offer in the 21st century where Americans are drawn. Jesus simply offers himself as the universal solution to all that burdens us. We all bear burdens and become weary, but in different ways, for different reasons, and often at different times. When we are weary, we are easily discouraged and can be given to cynical unbelief. So if you are weary, for whatever reason, however complex, Jesus invites you to come. Come, take his light yoke of believing in him.
At whatever stage of your life you find yourself, The life of faith is a constant coming to Jesus for daily, hourly, and fresh supplies. Always set aside part of each day to talk with God, thanking Him for who He is and what He has done for you.
