Matthew 11:28 The Passion Translation
“28 “Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to me, I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis.”
All of us have times of weariness. Life’s struggles are real. No one is exempt from troubles and trials. The difference between us is how we react to life’s issues. Will we allow our souls to get so wearied that we crumble under the strain? We can choose which way we react, good or bad.
I have had many times of great stress and fear. Weariness and overwhelming reactions tried to take over my life. It was when I cried out to the Father in Jesus’ Name that I was rescued and able to go through the struggles with success! He is for us. He is listening for our cry out to Him. Whenever we turn to the One who is able, He will lift us up, open doors of understanding and help us become victorious in life.
Over and over the Bible tells us to call upon Him, to cry out to Him, to “fear not” because He is with us. Our part is to believe that and obey it! Why we think we have to shoulder all our burdens is a mystery of life. We have a Savior who died for us and is always interceding for us before the Father. Let us go to Him in all our times of need.
Be blessed this week in His care. He loves you and wants the best for you always. Let Him take your cares, worries and woes and replace them with hope, faith and love.
Jeremiah 33:3 New King James Version
3 ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and [a]mighty things, which you do not know.’
Psalm 12:5 New King James Version
5 “For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy,
Now I will arise,” says the Lord;
“I will set him in the safety for which he yearns.”
Psalm 72:4 New King James Version
4 He will bring justice to the poor of the people;
He will save the children of the needy,
And will break in pieces the oppressor.
6 But when you pray, you should go into your room and close the door. Then pray to your Father. He is there in that private place. He can see what is done in private, and he will reward you.
7 “And when you pray, don’t be like the people who don’t know God. They say the same things again and again. They think that if they say it enough, their god will hear them. 8 Don’t be like them. Your Father knows what you need before you ask him. 9 So this is how you should pray:
‘Our Father in heaven,
we pray that your name will always be kept holy.
10 We pray that your kingdom will come—
that what you want will be done here on earth, the same as in heaven.
11 Give us the food we need for today.
12 Forgive our sins,
just as we have forgiven those who did wrong to us.
13 Don’t let us be tempted,
but save us from the Evil One.’
