Daily Devotional: For life-restoring rest

Matthew 11:28-30

~28"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."~

best-friends_non-animated_47 If you’re like most people today, you feel overworked, harassed, overscheduled, under-appreciated, tense, stressed, worn out—the list could go on and on. Today’s culture requires a huge investment from its people in time and energy and gives little in return. No wonder so many, Christians included, fell like they’re at the end of their ropes. Today, take comfort from Jesus’ offer of rest and relief. Pray His promise back to Him in your prayer time today.

Dear Jesus, I thank You that You realized, even thousands of years ago, how weary I would get with life. I thank You for Your offer of rest. I lay my burdens at Your feet, and ask that You will help me to leave them there. I lay myself at Your feet, Lord, and ask for the relief that only You can give from the burdens of life. I trust You, Lord, for life-restoring rest. Amen.
