Hello and Praise the Lord everyone! Welcome again to the memory verse for the week. I am so sorry I am late this week, (again) but I promise to do better. And thank you my friend for the reminder. You know who you are!

Father God, thank You once again for blessing us with another week in which to give You praise and glory. Thank You for giving us Your Word and helping us to understand it and to share it with each other. Please open our hearts and minds to Your Wisdom
In Jesus Name
Amen

This week the verse comes from Matt 11:28:
"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

What I wonderful promise from our Lord Jesus! How many of us are going through the labors of life and those labors start to become heavy burdens to us? Family, jobs, marriage, kids, sickness, and many other of life's many issues can be heavy weights on our shoulders.
When I think of heavy burdens, I always seem to go back the scenes of movies like Roots, or the Ten Commandments where you see men and women with heavy loads on their backs and they are bent over and some big sweaty mean guy is whipping them across the back as the stumble and fall. And that is how it feels sometimes to me when my problems start to pile up on me like one of those great stones the slaves had to move for Pharaoh.
But we have One who will take that burden of off us if we just ask Him to. He will take those burdens and place them at the foot of the cross and give us drinks of living water. He will wipe off all the dirt and grime that we have gathered while lifting those burden and clothe us in white and give us rest and peace from the trials of the world!

Jesus promised us before He went to sit at the right Hand of the Father that He would send us a Comforter. John 14:16 tells us, "And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;"
And the Comforter, who lives in us everyday, is waiting for you to give your care to Him and let him give you comfort and peace and rest.
How many of us stay up all night worrying about how you are going to solve a problem, or how you are going to fix a issue, when we should be going to Christ and giving it all to Him. And we should listen more to the Comforter and let Him bring to our remembrance all of the promises that god has for us. Just like this one. Do you need rest? Let Jesus give it do you. He is the only one that can!
In Jesus Name
Amen

Romans 8:1
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

May God richly bless you!

In Jesus Name
Amen
