TEXT: MATTHEW 11: 28-30
(28) Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
(29) 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.
(30) For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
KEY VERSE: JOHN 6:37
All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
I am the hope of all the ends of the earth, even at that, only few truly know it deep in their hearts. In Me lies the fulfilment of all the complex desires and possibilities of human nature. You know that all the qualities you see in Me are available for you. Are you sad, My child, that so often you fail to make use of them? Yes, men fail to appropriate that which is there for them, in Me. Set Me before you always as your one true hope. Be sure that your hand is firmly in Mine. Proclaim Me to others you meet as the hope of all mankind. There is much, more joy in My hand. They transcend the joy of this earth by an infinite amount. They are experienced through the medium of this world, but their origin is Myself.
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.
Your willingness to tread My way opens the gate to this joy. My child, I command you to be full of joy! You rise above earthly things and experience gladness which comes from being “hid” in Me. Your basic joy is in the fact that I am your companion and that I am faithful. Deep in your heart you know that all is well; let this be expressed more and more in every part of your life. My child, call upon Me as soon as any hurtful or overwhelming situation arises; firstly, so that you may learn the lesson I have for you in it; secondly, so that I may break the pattern of events before it becomes too burdensome for you. You know that I am more than equal to all the things which may threaten you or make you anxious. They remain by My permission – for just as long as they can further My plans for you – and for others.
The way of trust must be followed in every conceivable situation upon earth. My Children should constantly have complete confidence in Me, giving Me often the glance of utter trusting love. That confidence can never be misplaced. My child, you must let My peace enfold you, and as it does so, do not look at yourself but at Me! It is truly a healing peace. It is all that you need. Remember that my peace blots out all the hurts of the past. But for My peace you would be at the mercy of so much from your past experience. By your obedience, let that peace abide. There is no need to analyze whether you have My peace; just know it is there, shielding you, as you tread My way. My Name, the Name of Jesus, brings peace.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God will not reject anyone that comes to Him. Rely on Him for peace.
SONG FOR THE DAY: I will go with Jesus everywhere, no matter the roughness of the road,
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Joshua 4-6; Luke 2:1-24
