Come to ME... Shabbat REST!
Updated: Mar 12, 2019
Today is Shabbat. My day was not crazy, but it was not as calm as some! There were things that made it stressful and I had to navigate LISTENING to Holy Spirit in the midst of it all. Because of these situations I chose to look for a verse about REST. These are some of the most common, and yet a great reminder of WHO our rest should be in…
“Come to me, all of you who are struggling and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (CJB)
God truly desires for us to REST with HIM. He wants us to lay our burdens down. Leave all our struggles with Him.
HE is our Shabbat REST. Jesus exemplified Shabbat in EVERYTHING He did. When we model our lives after Him, and TRUST Him, our burdens will be less.
He is gentle. He is humble. When we strive to live like He did, we will find HIS REST.
How do we do this? WE LEARN FROM HIM.
We approach Him. We celebrate Shabbat like He did. We lay our troubles and trials at HIS feet. Then, we find rest for our soul.
I am THANKFUL for Shabbat. I am THANKFUL HE modeled this for me. HIS burden truly is light.
