30 Day Devotion

Day 7

One of the things our world needs most is an understanding of Rest.

Feeling tired? Burnt out? Feeling like life is too much sometimes? Jesus’ words here are “Come to me”. He will show us what it means to truly rest. He is gentle, not forcing his way into our lives, but invites us to see things the way He does in order that we might live out of this awareness.

Take a moment to come to Him today. Try spend 5 mins in silence after reading this passage and ask God to release from you any burden you are carrying or heaviness you feel.

Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV)

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 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. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
