This week we continue in our new sermon series, “Standing Firm on the Promises of God.” There are countless burdens that lay heavily on our shoulders each day, some are relatively light, so we think little of it. We pick them up and move on. Over time however, small burdens add up and before we know it we can find ourselves overwhelmed. Some burdens on the other hand are enormous, and when we try to stand up under them in our own strength, we immediately buckle.
God knows we will face trials and in fact He tells us in John 16:33… “In this world you will have trouble…” but He also reminds us to "take heart! I have overcome the world.”
As we continue to walk through this life, facing trails, difficulties and quite honestly burdens that are far too much for us to bear, Jesus offers us a promise when our souls grow weary. If we will come to Him, if we will trust in His word and if we will walk alongside Him, He WILL give us rest for our souls.
Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, 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.”
