Verse of the Day
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. [Matthew 11:28-30 – NKJV]
Do you find your work difficult and demanding? Our work isn’t supposed to be easy. After the Fall from Grace, God caused work to be a real burden for us. He cursed the land and even after we moved from farms into factories and offices, our work is still a chore. We toil away; nothing comes easy for us at work. There is always something that seems to keep us from completing our tasks in an effortless way.
If you work hard and feel like you are at the end of your rope, then take comfort in today’s passage. Jesus is offering to help us cope with our work. In fact, once we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior and start to learn His ways, He promises that we will receive rest for our souls. Trust and obey Him in all you do. Jesus’ yoke is not lighter because He demands less, but because He bears more of the load. As your walk with Him evolves and your relationship with Him matures, you will find that your time at work will become easier. Jesus is beside you sharing the load!
