Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
We will have many great days, but there are others that just are not that great. The list is long, the challenges deep, tasks are perplexity, and it feels like the world is against us. Yep, those are not fun days. But we will have a few days like this each year, and for some of us, they may last weeks, months, or years. If you have been here you know what we speak about, and if you are in it, well the words of Matthew 11:28 are a God-send to you today.
There is no burden, yes no burden too heavy for God. There is nothing God can't handle, no issue he will not hear, no burden he does not lift, and no labor he will not ease. While this world is full of heavy consequences, with God there is no consequence he is not willing to bear. For proof just look to cross and the burden he bore if lifting the consequences of sin, judgment, and eternity in hell for you and me.
DO THIS TODAY: Give God the burden only he can bear.
PRAYER: God, I must confess I have been holding onto a burden, that you would bear better than me. Help me to see my burden in light of the cross and find rest in the fact the battle has been won. Give me rest today and be my burden bearer.
