God promises us that if we come to Him, He will give us rest. I take great comfort in this verse. Life has a way of sucking everything we have out of us. Eventually we reach a point where we are so tired, so exhausted that it seems like there’s just no point. But if we turn to Christ, if we run to Him, we’ll find that eternal rest we’ve been looking for.
Verse 29 goes on to say “Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls”
Jesus wants us to come to Him, to depend on Him, to lean on Him. He isn’t going to force us to do so, however. But if you want to achieve true peace, true comfort then the only way to find that is through Jesus himself. 🙂
It took me years to realize this and now that I’ve found Him, I mean, truly found Him, I find myself wanting to share it with everyone I know.
He will give you rest. True rest. Just turn to Him. He’s there waiting, with arms wide open. 🙂
