Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”
Some days are harder than others. There are so many things that can get us down. Long hours at work, strained relationships, financial difficulties, medical conditions, emotional stress and family responsibilities are just a few of the pressures that can overburden us. Jesus knew the human condition. All around Him was human suffering. He worked tirelessly to help those that were sick and oppressed. More importantly, He left behind a system to replace His efforts and to expand His influence. He gave us the church, sent the Holy Spirit and took His rightful place at the right hand of the Father. The church works on His behalf to equip us, the Holy Spirit indwells us in order to guide and comfort us and Jesus Himself intercedes for us with the Father. So when Jesus said “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest,” He meant it. What burden do you have? What is weighing you down? Bring it to Jesus. He will comfort you, He will guide you, He will give you rest.
Lord, I bring to You my burdens. You know my situation. I cannot make it without You. Comfort my heart today. Guide me. Give me strength. Help me carry on. I give You my burdens; please give me Your rest.
In Jesus’ name.
