Matthew 11:28 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Matthew 11:28 

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Those are Jesus’ words, not mine, and they still hold the same promise today that they did 2000 years ago!! He longs for us to go to Him in times of trouble and hardship!

There is so much in this verse, but what spoke to me today were two words “all” and “will”!! That is a guarantee straight from Jesus that all who come to Him will get rest!! Not some, not most, but ALL!! And it says He WILL give us rest. It doesn’t say, “If you follow all My commands,” or, “If you do this for Me.” It simply says, “If you come to Me, it will be yours!!” Thank You, Jesus!!

Many times, I lay down at night and give what I’m thinking about over to Him, but before I get out of bed the next day, I take it back! I need to leave it with Him and receive His rest!! I often pray, “Give me strength, give me strength, give me strength,” but Jesus is saying, “Give it to Me, give it to Me, give it to Me!!!” Sometimes, the strength is found in the surrender!!! 

I love you all, and God bless you!! Let’s leave it at the foot of the cross!! Glory to God and the risen Lamb of God!!
