Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 08/28/11

This week’s scripture is from Exodus:

“The LORD replied, ‘My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.’”    (Exodus 33:14)

These days it seems there is always much work to do, but sometimes the tasks before us seem too big for us, the weight of them too much for us to bear, the needs are so great and there are so many. We shoulder our burdens like baggage and struggle to keep going, but we who belong to the Lord are not meant to do so; we are meant to be servants.

It is not the Lord’s intent that we bear the weight, for He tells us that His burden is light. If we will faithful follow Him and the path that He has for us and turn our burdens over to Him, He will not only bear them for us, but He promises to give us rest. God is so good. Let us lay down our burdens and surrender them to our Lord that we might have rest in Him.

May the Lord grant you rest as you turn your burdens over to Him.
