You Will Find Rest

As the night was falling, I went to the Lord Jesus to receive some rest for my soul. Suddenly, the Spirit of Love overwhelmed me with a feeling that caused me to tremble. (Elizabeth) (October 23-24, 1963)

Today’s Readings: Jesus said:

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.” (Matthew 11)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, we praise You, we bless You and we glorify You because we come to You for rest! We race around wound up, stressed out, burned out- the walking wounded. Life just piles up. Even when things are good, we wait for the next shoe to drop. Anxiety is just rampant these days. But You are the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). Our worlds are spinning but You remain stable. Lord today, we come to You believing You will give us rest and even when the burdens seem heavy, we know that with You all burdens become light. Jesus, we trust in You!
