Today’s Inspiration: “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 11:28-30. In 2022, caring for our soul is paramount. It’s not about self-centeredness but Christ centeredness. Learning to rest in the Lord physically, emotionally and mentally is blessed, wise and fruitful.
Our fight of life is not carnal but spiritual. Resting in the Lord is spiritual, not just physical. Today many are spending tons of time online, media, pursuing more wealth and busy with earthly things. Why do people only seek God when they are sick, impoverished and broken? It is the lust of the flesh, the eyes and pride of life. 1 John 2:16. The world is looking for transformation but the kingdom of God is about restoration for we sin and fall short the glory of God. Romans 3:23. It’s only through Christ Jesus, we can be redeemed and saved from sin, iniquities, and transgressions. Without seeking God wholeheartedly, we can’t hear His healing voice. The word of His voice brings peace, comfort and love into our spirit man.
Prayer: O Lord my God, when I am weak then you are strong. As I cast all my cares upon you Lord, may your Spirit lead me into your rest from all weariness and burdens. Take captive of all my thoughts and emotions unto thy Cross and Resurrection that I may find rest to my soul and strength to my spirit, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
