Today's Devotional Scripture

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, 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 28:28-30

It is easy to get weary. There are so many demands on our lives. We live at such a fast pace burning the candle at both ends. The result is that we end up tired much of the time. Where do we turn? Where do we turn for relief, comfort, escape from all the pressure? If we're not careful we can find ourselves victim to addictions, unhealthy relationships or negative emotions. But Jesus has a better way. He says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” More than that, Jesus invites us to learn from Him. His teaching is easy, and His burden is light. So today, let's turn to Jesus. Bring our weary souls to Him. Give Him our circumstances and our emotions. Surrender ourselves to His care. He promises that we will find rest for our soul.

Father, You know my condition. I am weary and in need of renewal. I am so glad that You have invited me to come to You for rest. I know that You are gentle and humble in heart and will give me rest for my soul. So I come to You even now Jesus. I put my soul into Your capable hands. Help me and heal me even now. I pray this in Jesus Name ~Amen!
