Rest for Your Soul - Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotional 17 May Wednesday
"Then Jesus said, 'Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.'" (Matthew 11:28, NLT)
Rest for Your Soul
wants to give you rest. He wants to refresh and restore your soul—your
mind, will and emotions. It’s so easy to get caught up in the “busyness”
of life, and before long, your mind, will and emotions are so “spun up”
that you can barely think straight! But even in the hustle of life, you
can find rest, ease and relaxation. God wants you to enjoy your life.
That’s why He tells us to come to Him. God wants to take care of
everything that concerns you so that you can find rest in your innermost
how you would feel if someone came up to you today and said, “Give me
all of your monthly bills; I’m going to pay them.” You’d get pretty
excited, wouldn’t you? But it wouldn’t happen until you did your part to
actually hand that person your bills. They can’t pay them for you if
you never release them. In the same way, when we release our cares and
concerns to God, He promises to take care of them.
choose to release your cares to the Lord. Let Him fill you with His
peace and joy. Receive the rest that He promises and enjoy the
fulfillment and blessing He has for you!
A Prayer for Today
in heaven, today I humbly come to You. I choose to cast my cares on You
so that I can live in Your rest. Thank You for Your goodness to me.
Help me find ways to share Your goodness with those around me today in
Jesus’ name. Amen."
