“To whom He said, “This is the resting place, let the weary rest”; and, “This is the place of repose” – but they would not listen. – Isaiah 28:12
People today struggle with tremendous pressure and in such stressful times tend to become very weary.
That is why Christ invites us by saying, “Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” – Matthew 11:28. Yet, instead of accepting this offer, many of us still try to find man-made solutions to our problems in our own strength.
Regardless of how busy you are, you must make time to withdraw from the demands of the day and spend time quietly at the feet of the Master. Focus on Him and His love. Regardless of how demanding and frantic your life may be, in the quietness you will be strengthened by God’s peace.
I have such a need for your rest, Lord. Help me to be strengthened in the peace of your presence. Amen
