Buddy is enjoying some rare sunshine in the Pacific Northwest. He is peaceful and at rest, relaxing near the back door, because he isn’t worried about his safety. He knows he’s living with people who love him.
When we keep our focus on Jesus, we too can be at rest from our anxieties and fears, because He loves His children.
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.” (NASB)
Please note that Jesus GIVES you rest if you ask for it. You don’t work for it, don’t earn it. But you must come to HIM. And you learn from Him by reading the Bible.
There’s a reason it’s the most banned book in the world. Because through it we discover how God’s power can operate in our lives.
This Labor Day weekend, I hope you find rest for your souls in Jesus.
