If It’s Not Easy And Light, It’s Not God!

Matthew 11:28,30 NIV | “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

I realised I’ve been experiencing this ease and lightness in my walk and work for Lord, more than ever. As I pondered it, the Lord reminded me of today’s scripture, and made me realise it was the key. “For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

According to Him, weariness, stress, and burnout, is an indication that you’re carrying your own burden. It’s a sign that you’re labouring in the flesh. It’s a pointer that His grace is lacking. But lightness, ease, and grace, is an evidence that He’s the One working in you and through you. It’s proof that you’ve ceased from your own labour. It’s a sign that you’ve entered God’s rest.

Lord, Your commands are not burdensome. In them we have peace. Lead us beside still waters. Make us to willfully and cheerfully submit to Your will. Amen!
