3 Ways To Find Rest

Are you feeling weary and burdened? Do you long for a rest?

Did you know that the Lord longs to care for you? He longs to be able to provide all of your needs?

Let's look at Matthew 11:28 and see how we can gain access to His love and care.

Matthew 11:28 NIV 

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

What do you see in this verse?

It clearly tells you that you should

1. Go to Jesus

2. Give Him your burdens

3. Receive rest

What does it mean to go to Jesus? For me, it means to accept Him into your heart. Confess your sins and receive forgiveness of those sins that only He is able to forgive. Once you unburden yourself, you will be able to find rest for your soul.

The next time you feel weary and burdened by life, turn to Him in prayer. Seek Him out in the Bible. Ask His forgiveness of any recent sins, ask for guidance and wisdom with your decisions. He is always there. He wants to give you rest.


Dear Father, 

Thank You for all that You have done. Thank You for taking my sins upon You as You hung on that cross. Thank You for providing a way for me to reach You. Father, I pray that You will help me to turn to You when I am weary and burdened and trust that You will give me rest. In Jesus' name, Amen.
