“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.” Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV)
True rest, peace and contentment lies in learning to lean on the Lord, relying on him for our needs, listening to his call, obeying his will. Tall orders. For controlling people (like me) this is difficult, but I do know that the peace that comes from doing this is a peace that passeth all understanding.
Lord, please help me to lean on you, rely on you, listen to you and obey you…completely and totally.
How have you experienced this peace?
Have a wonderful day!
