Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls (Matthew 11:28-29, NLT).
My Personal Prayer for You
Lord Jesus, sometimes we don’t really know what we need.We search for all the wrong things in all the wrong places. We can’t erase the past, and we can’t control the future. We work too hard and too long, hoping it will quell the deep down hunger in our hearts and souls. But Lord, what we truly need is You, sweet rest in You. You are the One who daily bears our burdens. You are the One who lifts our spirits. You are the One who heals our souls. You, Lord, only You. Today, we choose not to stress, but to rest in You, to trust Your plans, Your timetable, Your faithfulness. Thank you, Jesus, for Your total, unconditional love and grace. Thank You that in You real life begins.
How has God taught you to rest in Him?
