(Mat 11:28 NKJV) "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
As a follow-up to yesterday's verse, we want to reassure everyone that God is in control.
Jesus told us to come to Him so He can give us rest! This adds to His words that we shared about worrying. He wants us to rest in Him!
This doesn't mean that when something comes along that requires work on our part that we just ignore it and wait for God to clean up the mess for us. But it does mean that as we are obedient to Him and we do what He requires of us, we don't need to "sweat the small stuff".
God's rest is different than what man thinks of when it comes to rest. God's rest gives us peace, comfort and joy. God's rest takes away our worries and replaces them with security in His word and His promises.
So take God's promises and the words of Jesus and implement them in your life, trusting Him. Put them into practice and learn how to live in His peace. It takes some effort on our part initially, but the effort is more than worth it when we finally understand this truth and begin to walk it out.
We pray God's peace over each and every one of you today, in the name of Jesus.
