Matthew 11:28 “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

This is a great promise Jesus gives to us in this verse. Currently, we live in a fast pace society. Daniel, by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, spoke about our time. Daniel 12:4 says, “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” We live in the time of the end. We see all around us many that run to and fro. If we are honest with ourselves, we are also apart of the running to and fro. Our fast pace society will wear you out and if not dealt with, it will burn you out. Burn out is a common word in the world we live in and the cause is running to and fro. 

Our Lord Jesus has the cure for our anxiety, weariness, and stress. He tells us if we find ourselves depleted of life itself, it’s time to call for a timeout! Jesus gives us an open invitation to come to Him and He will give us supernatural rest. I like the way the Amplified Bible translates this verse. It says “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.”As you read this post and you are in need of relief, take heart that Jesus invites you to come to Him. You come to Him by believing and receiving this promise in Matthew 11:28. The Lord’s Word and His promises will take you to Jesus Himself! It’s time to be refreshed and only Jesus can make that happen.

God Bless!
