THE SECRET OF CALM AND PEACE AND REST AND PATIENCE AND LOVE IS RESTING IN THE LORD!
“Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light” (Mat.11:28-30).
The Lord said, “My yoke is easy and My burden is light”–but there’s one condition–“Come unto Me!” When you are wearied with the strain of it all, you can fly to God on the wings of prayer and faith and get the relief that He alone can give you. He knows what you need most of all!–Rest and peace and fellowship with Him and feeding on His Word.–“And you shall find rest to your soul.” Not many people understand that the soul is a body with a spirit. If you don’t rest in the Spirit you are going to wear out your body!
Jesus even says of Himself, “For I am meek and lowly in heart”–humble–“and ye shall find rest unto your souls.” If you’re meek and lowly in heart, you’ll find rest to your soul, for His yoke is easy and His burden is light! Take His yoke on you.–Not the yoke of this world, not your own yoke, but the yoke of Jesus’ Own love and His burden of love for others!
