28 Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.Matthew 11:28-30 (KJV)
This is a time of year in which most of us can become so weary and burdened with all the expectations and demands put upon us that we find it difficult to rest. We lie in bed worrying about all the things we have to do and we are so busy getting everything sorted for the holiday season. Rest does not factor into the equation.
There is another way.
Jesus asks us first to come; come with your burdens and weariness into his presence as he has a gift for you – rest. In that place, you can exchange your burdens for his yoke. Give him your weariness and receive rest.
And I hear you ask – how can a yoke be easy? It is not a yoke like an animal would wear. What He is offering is His hand. He is stretching out His hand to you right now, and all you have to do is take it. Let Him hold your hand, and He will guide you, protect you and comfort you.
So, come and take hold of the hand of Yahusha now and allow Him to help you navigate through this season in the position of rest.
