August 13 Finding rest in the Lord

Mathew 11:28
Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

There are burdens, problems and yokes we struggle with every day. However, God tells us in Psalms 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God.”

To not surrender to God is to choose to live a burdened, restless and stressed life with all its pressures. In contrast, when we give our problems to the Lord, we become still and receive His rest.

When we stop fighting with our own strength; when we let go of the burden and surrender to God. Today you can begin to rest, starting with this simple prayer: “Lord, I cannot fix this problem with my own strength, so I let it go and leave it in Your hands”. When you let go, your soul rests, and you give God the full control. When you surrender to His will, you allow Him to intervene in your problem. Today the Lord wants to teach us how to rest in Him. While we serve and worship Him, He will work in our favor. Surrender to Him, and let God take control.
