Matthew 11:28 “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
These words of Jesus have often prompted me to turn everything over to Him, but it seems like I should be doing something too. Why can’t I simply let go and let God handle things?
It seems too easy to just say, “OK, Lord, I know I can’t change my circumstances. I need you to give me peace in this situation.” Our sinful nature tells us that we are in charge of our own destiny, but God is really the one in control. It’s difficult for us to let go and let God do what is best for us, even if it means going through trials and struggles.
Please, Lord, give me the rest you promise. When things get tough in life, please lift me up and hold me tight. Let me rest in the security of your love. Amen!
