Find Rest in the Lord

April 4, 2017

Are you getting tired of your life, your work and all the circumstances that are happening in your life?

Our world is full of weariness, pain, hunger, debt, poverty, disease and death. We have a lot of responsibilities to fulfill, a lot of deadlines to meet and a lot of struggles to face, but do not forget that we are only humans and we need to rest. There is someone inviting us, Jesus invites us and welcomes us to give us rest.  

Matthew  11:28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.

Jesus can give us the rest that we deserve by the use of the Holy Spirit. It will enlighten us, give us peace of mind and definitely give us rest in everything that we are on.

Everybody needs a break, rest and time to unwind in order to be productive again. But always remember that when we try to do everything in our own capabilities without the acknowledgement of the Creator, our God, we will just get worn-out and frustrated by our own mistakes and failures.

Proverbs 3:5-6  Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.

This verse tells us to acknowledge our God and let Him always be the center of our life, with that we can be assured that we are on the right path. We are resting on His power and glory.

Trusting God can give us true rest. When we are weary in life’s struggles, let us find rest in the Lord.
