“God Desires to Lighten your Load”
(Mat 11:28-30 KJV) Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Even while the economy is going crazy, foreclosures of homes are at its highest point ever, and people losing their jobs and some even losing their cars it is not always hopeless. When I read this scripture it gives me hope and comfort. It lets me know that in these present times there is another alternative that can give me a better and easier way to live. For God never said that we wouldn’t have yokes and/or heavy burdens but however here in Mathew 11:28-30 He offered you a way of escape from them. God knows everything that you are going through; He realizes that it is taking two-to-three jobs to keep your bills paid, the lights on and food in your refrigerator. These are what you call yokes of life that cause you to be heavy-laden.
For if we look at the definition of a yoke it refers to something that is restraining you, holding you in bondage, or something that forces you into heavy labor. Right now today we have so many yokes in our lives that we have not paid much attention to them all. The ones I spoke of are just the ones that we see and hear daily but I am writing to make you aware of the invisible ones that are wearing us out. Things such as worry, fear, depression, discouragement, failure, low self-esteem and pride they are all wearing and tearing on our emotional, social and spiritual well being. Whichever ones are active in your life I want to inform you that if you Let Go and Let God he can and will Lighten your Load.
For if you exchange your yokes for His yoke God promises to give you rest not just rest from the physical issues but He promises you rest for your soul (emotions, intellect and will). Now what exactly does that mean? It means God may not take away all of your problems but in the midst of them He can give you mental and emotional tranquility, as well as a peace that surpasses all understanding that will keep your hearts and mind through Christ Jesus.
Now how can we not receive such a wonderful and loving invitation from our Great God? For I know from my own experience with the Master that His yoke is easy and His burden is light! So I say to you, “In the midst of all of your burdens, trials, and tribulations take heed to His word and Let God Lighten your Load”…
