I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today, is from the book of Matthew 11:28, “Come to Me all you who labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.”
From the above context, we understand that our God calls us to come unto Him and take rest under the shade of His mighty arms. In this world there will be tribulation and trials. There will be sorrow and pain because we have to labour for our living. Since we are subjected to hard labour and work we easily become tired and worn out hence God calls us to take rest.
The heavy yoke of bondage to sin is a weighty burden we all have to carry on the treadmill of life, which causes physical weariness, spiritual fatigue and emotional exhaustion. But Christ’s invitation to “COME”, brings rest to the weary, comfort for the hurting, solace to the heavily laden and rest for the soul. Jesus is the well-spring of Life and the Light that has come into the world, to give hope to all who will trust on His name. Christ alone is the One Who can heal the hurting, rescue the perishing and save a sinner for there is no other name given among men whereby we must be saved. Jesus came into the world, to show us the Father God. He shines forth the radiance of the glory of God, for He is the exact image of God, and upholds all things by the word of His power. The invitation from Jesus has no limitations. He will turn no one away. He alone can lift the heavy yoke of bondage to sin, which weighs down the burdened heart. He alone can heal the broken-hearted, rescue those that are perishing and set the captive free from the weighty burden of sin. And His invitation is open to all who will believe on His name.
You may have great troubles and trials in this world. But God will cause. His grace to fall upon you. You will receive the fruit of blessing in your hand. In the past, you might have experienced much sorrow. You might have lost your job, your loved one, your business might have been a failure, and there was no one to lift you up, And so you might have even lost your hope. But in future God wants to do something good through you. You might be wondering as to how God is going to help you in this year 2020 when all things are so weird and disappointing. Many of you reading this message are thinking “what good can happen in my life?” We have lost everything and what can we hope for? Well there was a king by name Asa, He sought God and so he was blessed. He said, “Come let us build these cities. And make walls, and towers, and gates and bars around them, for we have sought Him and He has given us rest, on every side. So they built and prospered.”
All things are possible to them that believe. If only you will believe, you will see the glory of God. For faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of the things not seen. “Come to Me,” is an invitation for the broken-hearted soul and burdened sinner. Therefore COME, just as you are. “Come unto Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden.”Come and take rest. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Thank You Lord, because we can come close to You, knowing that the barrier of sin has been removed. Thank You for giving us true rest for our soul and perfect peace in our heart and even in the midst of any storm Your peace that passes human understanding remains forever. Thank You for inviting us to come unto You and take rest.
