“Come to me, all…for my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” I know what a yoke is; I have seen a picture of my Grandfather plowing with oxen and they are yoked. Out of curiosity I looked up the word yoke on dictionary.com. Definition number 4 is:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (emphasis is mine)
Lord, thank you for leading me to this verse today. Thank you for enlightening me and reminding me that You are where I find true rest. Thank you for the ways you are working in the lives of those I love, Lord. Please continue to be with them, guide them and direct their paths. Give them the courage to follow you will and find their rest in You. Please give them and me, Lord, the courage to immerse ourselves in Your grace, in Your forgiveness, in Your love. Lord, I ask that you be with the people that are faced with difficult decisions…give them wisdom and insight to know your will.
Have a blessed day….
