Matthew 11:28 (NKJV) Come to Me, all you who labor 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.”
There are plenty of roads in life that promise joy, health, peace, or transformation. Most of them, however, don’t lead in that direction. You can literally exhaust yourself seeking spiritual refreshment. And that doesn’t make any sense. We work hard at building a good life, but instead of joy on the journey, we often feel overwhelmed by life. Where are you in your life right now?
Have you grown weary going down one wrong road after another with life? Proverbs tells us, “There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death.” (Proverbs 14:12) The fact that a way looks right at first glance doesn’t mean it’s leading toward spiritual renewal, it could be leading to a dead end.
If you’re someone who has taken many paths but still finds yourself weary, turn to the Lord Jesus today. ” (Matthew 11:28-30)! Any spiritual path that doesn’t lead to Jesus Christ won’t lead to true spiritual renewal, no matter how right it seems at first.
Point to ponder- In fact, Jesus Christ Himself is our way. Remember, the burden He calls you to bear on your journey is light, and the yoke of His expectation fits you perfectly. When you do this, He promises rest for your soul. I am learning consistency in my walk with the Lord, have a great Tuesday!
