Jesus said, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest
(Matt. 11:28 NKJV). God’s promise of divine relief and rest is for anyone who will accept it.
It doesn’t matter who you are or what you’re facing.
Are you troubled and ill at ease? Are life’s pressures weighing you down? Do you need relief from the stress of your present situation? Could you use some rest for your soul?
If so, Jesus says, “Come to Me and hear My voice. Come into My Presence and experience My grace and strength.” He is inviting you, but He won’t force you to accept what He’s offering. You have to do something. It’s up to you to come to Him.
You must also be willing to exchange your yoke for His. Jesus said, “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls” (Matt. 11:29 NKJV).
In other words, when you come to the Lord, you will have to submit yourself to His guidance and authority to enjoy His rest. You’re the one who decides whether to obey Him. You are saved by faith, but you enter into God’s rest by obedience!
Aren’t you glad that God provided a way of escape from the pressures you encounter? Isn’t it wonderful that He’s not off somewhere in the distance? He is not making you deal with difficult situations to the best of your know-how.
You can draw strength and encouragement from the Lord’s invitation for whatever you need today. Jesus Christ, the Anointed One, can remove any burden and destroy any yoke in your life. He is saying to you, “I am your Deliverer. Come to Me, and I will give you rest.”
