True rest does not come from having a vacation. Many times we try doing so many things to try and get rest. We take 2 weeks off, but when we get back, we need a vacation from our vacation. We try to sit quit for awhile. We try to get a massage and many other things. But after all the things we try, we are still tired.
But true rest only comes as we place our faith in what Jesus did at the Cross daily. Just as when we got saved and we trusted the message of the Cross and believed that is the only true rest!
Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Heavy laden means over burden with ceremony. We want to do things to get the rest we need. We try to do things to get what we think God has for us. We work as Martha did. But it is the work for the Lord. But we need to sit at His feet and hear His voice. We need to trust Him that as we do take the time to spend with Him all the other things and work that needs to be done, He will give us strength.
You only get “burned out” when you trust yourself and you get your eyes off the one who gives you rest. You changed your focus from Jesus to what you are doing.
Matthew 11:28-29Come 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.
Learn of Me! Learn of Me! Learn of Me!
He will give you rest as you come unto Him. You shall find rest as you learn of Him continually.
May you come unto Him, but may you learn of Him, and stay there. This world has nothing to offer. All that they try to do to give a person rest has no lasting value. Taking a vacation will not work. The problems will still be there when you get back.
Jesus says, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
Find true rest today. Are you already saved and do not have rest, the answer is the same!!!!
