I will give you rest

Posted by appolus on March 17, 2020

Just last week I was writing about our “suddenlies.” How situations and circumstances can change very quickly and throw us back on our feet. A few weeks ago we had the best economy on record. We had the lowest unemployment on record. Now suddenly, that has all gone. This is the uncertain nature of life itself.

It if precisely because of this uncertainty that it vital that we have a certain hope and a sure place to stand. Jesus is both. He is our hope. In Him lies our peace. Through Him we stand on a sure place.

In Matt 5:29-30 Jesus warns that it is better to pluck out your eye and cut of your hand and go into heaven maimed, than to go wholly into hell. As bad as this virus may be or may become, the eternal reality of folks souls has not changed.

We should pray all the more saints that the hearts of men and women would be humbled in the face of collapse rather than hearts to be hardened or faint with fear. Jesus , in Matt 11, reproves unrepentant cities with some very hard words when he says that for many cities, it will be more tolerable for Sodom than them in the day of judgment in light of the revelation of Him that they had and ignored. Scary, is it not?

Yet praise the Living God He ends that chapter with a tremendous olive branch. “Come unto me all you who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me.” Are you tired tonight? Has anxiety wore you down?

Do you carry the heavy load all alone? Do you want to “learn,” of Jesus and find rest for your souls? Then turn to Him tonight and turn away from the world. Cry out to God for mercy for your sins and you will find it and in the finding of that mercy you will find your place in eternity. You will find your name written in the Lambs book of life.

    Amen! thank you. Here is a song my prayer partner shared with me this AM. Thought you would like it. It seems perfect for this time especially. Loy Leslie https://youtu.be/mhak9ir0FZ4
