Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 04/10/11

This week’s scripture is from Matthew:

“Come to me, all you who are weary and heavy laden, 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.”        (Matthew 11:28-30)

Life is not without its burdens, for who can say their life is trouble-free, and the cares of this world can mount quickly upon us. Yet, in the midst of everything, it is good to stop and thank the Lord for what we do have and for what He has done. Have we not received many blessings? Does not the Lord take care of His own? Did He not send His Son, Jesus Christ, to bear our burdens, to provide for our every need, to be our salvation and our Savior? Do we keep bearing our burdens or do we come into agreement with our Lord and allow Him to take them and lighten our load, to let the troubles of the day be enough for the day? Do we trust Him as we should?  Bless us Lord to take you at your word, to surrender each day and the challenges of the day to You.

May the Lord bless you to be able to lay your burdens at His feet, and to rest in Him.
