“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; 1 Samuel 28-29, Psalm 109, and Matthew 11.
Talk about a description of life on this earth!
“Weary and burdened?” Who isn’t there or has been there? Not there now? Wait a while!
When we get weary. When we get burdened. Where do we turn? Not God? We have a counterfeit god. Plain and simple.
Jesus invited the folks with weariness and woes to come to Him. How is that done? I identify me…needy. I identify Him…….the Comforter. I turn my problem(s) over to Him. I involve Him in their solutions. I let go and let God!
I am never going to function as He wants apart from Him. When I separate (intentionally or unintentionally) from Him, I will soon be overwhelmed one way or the other.
Once you’ve been connected to God, it is very discomforting to bring on other gods. They are NOT Him. They are limited. They are terminal.
“Good Scripture for every reader. We need You 24/7. Forgive me for chasing (and trusting) counterfeit gods. It’s a mistake. I know better. I need You in all seasons. You are my only God. Guide me, O thou great Jehovah.”
He’s telling you to “come to Him.” Do it!
