“Come to me, all you who are burdened,…and I will give you rest..”
I was talking with someone who was struggling to encourage a loved one. My friend was adamant that God only helps those who help themselves.. I could see her frustration; and felt so torn by what she was saying, as I struggled to give her hope.. God’s breath of truth and love pierced the darkness as I heard His gentle voice…
“.. I desire mercy, not sacrifice..” (Matt.9:12)
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
(Matt. 11: 28-30)
What an amazing God we have. He is love. No matter what we are going through, He loves first…
God doesn’t want my strife. He longs for my heart. He says Come to me when you are burdened and weary. He knows our weaknesses.. He knows why we struggle, and He knows we desperately need Him.
He is our Strong Tower
He is Near.
Dear Heavenly Father, Your love amazes me. That You desire mercy softens, and strengthens my heart; and makes me want to be a better person.. to love more, to give more, and to seek to be more and more a light of Your hope to a world so filled with pain and struggle. Use my heart, and my hands to love those who can’t help themselves, that they would be drawn into your presence…That they would know You love them, see them, and are always fighting for them.
How, I always; always need this truth…
I love You Jesus
In Your name, I pray,
Food for thought; look up these scriptures… you will be blessed :)
John 10:27, Gal. 6:9, Isaiah 61:10, Hebrews 10:22, Psalm 32: 1-2, Proverbs 18:10
