Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.
Sometimes we find ourselves worrying about many things. What is next for me? how will it happen? How will I succeed? Am I at the right place? Etc. These questions end up occupying our minds, leaving us restless without offering solutions. The funny thing about our human flesh is, even if all things we believe we need are settled, we would never have rest.
JESUS CHRIST came to give rest to mankind. Because he himself is the only rest we can ever get, he offered himself to give us rest. He said in Matthew 11:28 – 29 “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”.
Are you struggling with satisfying the desires of your flesh, are you struggling to please someone, is your happiness defined by someone or situations around you? Then you need to let Jesus take care of those burdens, so you may find rest. Jesus is always ready to take that load off your shoulder. As a caring friend he is ready to stand by you until you overcome your fears, worries and guilt. Jesus is available to give you rest because he loves you, he desires to be with you, he wants you to learn about him (To know him).
If you need Jesus to give you rest, please pray this prayer inviting him to take charge of your life.
JESUS, I accept you as my LORD and SEVIOR
I believe you died on the cross and rose from the dead to give me rest in you. I open my heart to you Jesus, come and take control of my life. Amen
