It is always His will for us to walk in the freedom that Jesus has already paid for us. In this week’s verses, He tells us to be “yoked up” or connected with Him because what He has for us is refreshing, not depressing, He has rest for us, not chaos, He has what is easy and light, not heavy and dark.
Don’t just read these words today but read them and ingest them as if you were eating them to get all the nutrients and health out them. These Words that Jesus is speaking to YOU (yes, He is speaking to you) today will bring you everything they promise to bring. Meditate on them, pray over them and the Holy Spirit will give you the realization that you already possess this in Him.
I declare this is a restful, refreshing easy and light week knowing that you are in Him, and He is in your born-again spirit in all His Greatness! Wow, what a week!
Blessings to all!
Matthew 11:28-30 NKJ
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.
Matthew 11:28-30 TPT
“Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis. Simply join your life with mine. Learn my ways and you will discover that I’m gentle, humble, easy to please. You will find refreshment and rest in me. For all that I require of you will be pleasant and easy to bear.”
This week’s Prayer: Father, thank you for giving us rest within our hearts through Jesus. We were not created to carry the burdens and to take on yokes of bondage from this fallen world. Help us to run to you and to realize that every burden, every bondage, everything that would try to make us captive has been taken and paid for at the cross. Thank you for refreshing our lives, for being our oasis, our place of rest as we learn of you and become so intimately acquainted with you that we come to the place of knowing we are already pleasing to you as your son and daughter.
Remember, you are loved, you are righteous, and you are His!
