Matthew 11:28-30 says: 28″Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, 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. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
A Better Way! The secret to overcoming the frustrations of life is “COMING TO JESUS!” He has rest that He wants to give to you and me. He has a new and better way that He wants to teach us, but we cannot take on and learn His way, until we take off and lay aside our way.
You Can Have Rest! Jesus wants to give you physical, mental, emotional, financial and spiritual rest, but you have to take it His way, which means that you have to trust Him enough to really trust Him. Let go and let God! You will be glad you did!
Do you have a Bible? What do you do with it? A lot of people have them, but often fail to use them. God gave us our Bibles so that we could have His Word. He gave us His Word so that our lives could be lived in the right direction!
Joshua 1:8“Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”
Think About It! Don’t let it depart from your mouth! We are to read it, think on it, and speak it all of the time. We are to meditate on it day and night so that we can apply it and obey it in every situation and circumstance in life.
God Wants You To Have Success! God loves you and has an amazing plan for your life! God wants you to prosper and succeed! The secret to experiencing His success is living in obedient surrender to His Word and that is why taking in a little every day can make a big difference!
Busy, Busy, Busy! That is the way that most of us live our lives. We are almost always in motion either “going to” or “coming from!” To really get the most out of life, we must take some time to step out of the hurried activity and get to know what really matters. What really matters is a WHO!
Psalms 46:10 says” “Be still (cease striving) and know that I am God…” Eight little words packed with a powerful message!
BE STILL! Slow down and come to a complete stop! Don’t move a muscle! We need to learn to still our physical bodies, our minds and our spirits, so that we can see, hear and experience God. God is everywhere! God is all around us! The reason that we miss Him is not because He is not here, but because in our busyness, we fail to see, hear and experience Him. God tells us to cease our striving and in the still and quiet of a moment we can know and experience Him!
Know That I Am God! It is very possible in all of our busy activity to some how, without even realizing it, convince ourselves that we are God. We know that we are not, but often times, we live our lives as if we think that we are. What is really going to happen in this world if you take ten minutes out of your day to say no to everything else and yes to the Master? Do you really think that this world will come screeching to a halt without your activity in it for ten minutes?
Step Out And Away! If you want to know God – really know Him, then you must step out of the busyness and away from the distractions! Make sure that you take some time today to get out of the fray and into His presence! You will be glad that you did!
