Rest for the Weary!

Manna For Today: Friday, January 20, 2017


Matthew 11:28“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

This text reminds me of the sweet repose a child finds on the lap of a mom or dad. It’s just not a break from the interest or demand of the day, it’s a refuge (comfort, relief, help and hope). It is the kind of rejuvenation that can only come from divine inspiration.

If you are tired, weary or weighed down by the heaviness of your circumstances, go to your Heavenly Father now. He is waiting for you, ready to relieve your weariness and lift your burden.

Exchange your weariness for His rest today!

Peace and blessings!

    Heavenly Father, thank You! Your rest and comfort is supernatural. I need and accept it daily. Please, show me how to direct others to it as well. For You alone can give us what we need, when we need, and Your gifts are complete. In the name of Your Son, Jesus, and by the power of Your Holy Spirit, I pray. Amen.

    Amen! Matthew 11:28 – my favorite Bible verse. I know the Lord will give me the rest I need after the world tries to beat me down. I find that rest every day in His word, and through prayer and faith. Thank you Jesus.
