Matthew 11:28-29 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
28 “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 29 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.
God desires for all of us to have His rest that he provides. He does not want any of us to live in a way where we are weighted down with heavy burdens or stress. His desire for you and me is that we live free and fully alive in Him. He desires that we are lost in His presence. He wants us to be enraptured in His love. This is because He is love. He has even provided a way for us to lay it all down at His feet not continuing to carry all this on our own. All we have to do is through faith lay or cast all our worries and stresses down at His feet and take up His teaching.
- Have you ever carried stress so long that it has turned into anxiety?
- Have you ever been so burdened you could not even hear God when he speaks?
- If so:
- Pray that God helps you see how to lay down your stress and burdens at His feet.
- Now pray: God I lay down all my stresses and burdens to you. Talk from me the heaviness that has weighed me down and give me your reset. Help me to hear your Holy Spirit clearly.
