March 1, 2019 WE CAN HAVE REST
Many of us live out our days dealing with some type of issue or carrying a burden of some sort. We could be dwelling on the past. We could nervous about the future. We may have a relationship that is not right. There are endless reasons we could be struggling. However, when our focus is on God, we can remember His promise of rest. God wants to be with us in all we do and He wants to give us rest so we aren’t anxious or troubled. A troubled or anxious life is not at all the life He planned for us.
Exodus 33:14 “The Lord replied, ‘I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you rest—everything will be fine for you.’” (NLT)
1. Write what troubles you.
2. List how you deal with it.
3. Know God can give you rest.
4. Seek His word. Give your troubles to Him.
Dear Lord, we are so grateful for Your promise of rest. We need it so badly. We rush here and there. We get anxious about the things in our lives. We dwell on the past. We have troubles in our relationships, our finances or our health. There are so many things that weigh us down. Help us to give our burdens to You and let You do as You promised – give us rest. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Rather than focusing on the worries of life, we should focus on God who promises to give us rest.
God wants us to lay our burdens down before Him and He will give us rest.
God promises to go with us and give us rest in all we do…when we choose to obey Him.
Trusting in God for rest during the tough times of life will help us truly experience it.
We can get perfect rest from God when we choose to follow Him.
Matthew 11:28 “Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” (NLT)
