“Come to Me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take up My yoke and learn from Me, because I am lowly and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:28-29
There has never been a more humble person to walk this planet than Jesus Christ. The full power of God confined into human flesh, yet He was the perfect example of a lowly and humble heart. Oh man, God is awesome!
When it comes to walking with the Lord it is important to read His Word and to accept what it says in faith. When Jesus says to take His yoke upon you and learn from Him, you really should do it. This means to look to Him, to analyze how He would pray in submission to His Father’s will and how He loved and treated the humble and broken.
Learn from the master of humility and lowliness and then follow His lead. Is there pride in your heart? Is there striving? You are being asked by the Lord today to lay those things down in lowliness and humility so you can find rest for your soul. He loves you so dearly and rest is just one of the many blessings of having Jesus as the Lord of your life.
Trust Jesus today. Trust Him with everything that makes you anxious. Trust Him with every ounce of heaviness that you carry. He has something better for you as a replacement.
