I Will Give You Rest 

 (Matthew 11:28)

On a small dusty path one hot summer day, an old woman sweating and carrying a load on her head was moving fast toward the road. Due to the load on her head and the severe heat, her throat was dry. She was breathing hard. At last she reached the point where she could stop and wait to take the bus.

There were some other people who were also waiting for the bus. She stood at the side of the road with them, still carrying her load on her head. In the far distance a cloud of dust arose, and out of this dust cloud a bus appeared. At last the old woman got into the bus. Now she removed the load from her head and, although the adjoining seat was not occupied, she put it in her lap. She was very delighted that she was able to secure a seat in the bus. But she did not realize that she still carried that load.

It is very sad that around the world the situation is the same with some believers. They believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, but they don’t realize they must put down all of their burdens and worries at the feet of the Lord. They grumble and murmur within themselves and they suffer with the consequences of these burdens. These burdens make them weak physically, mentally, and spiritually.

(1)  Spiritual  Sickness.  We see many people in this world who socially are very influential, and financially they are free. Academically they are on very high ground. But within themselves they carry an invisible burden of sin. Externally they appear to be very much contented and satisfied. But internally their lives are absolutely different. It is like a duck in a pond: she seems very peaceful, but internally she is working very hard with her feet in order to keep on moving.

Jesus said, “All ye that labor and are heavy laden,” What type of “heavy laden” are we carrying… what type of heavy load do we carry today?

All ye that labor.There are people who are in great trouble; those who are going through much mental tension. There is physical torture and suffering, and there is another kind which is mental torture and tension. The mental stress and torture also affects our bodies.

Heavy laden. Not only the non-believers but many believers, and those who are born-again, are heavy laden. Many of us are under the burden of sin, hatred, jealousy, bitterness, the unforgiving spirit, guilt, inferiority complex, a sense of depravity. There is fighting and unrest, domestic disunity, sickness, and evil desires. Nobody can say that he is burden-free.

This is the problem of man; this is the human sickness.  Its cure is only with a divine physician.”

(2) Divine Prescription. The Lord Jesus Christ said, “Come unto me!”  This is an invitation. This offer is above any age group, class, nationality and social status.  This offer is for everybody.

“Jesus Christ is the only divine physician. He has this divine prescription.”He claimed, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no one cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)

When we are under a heavy burden, where do we fix our eyes, or where do we look for help? Do we go to Jesus? Do we look toward Jesus? Do we pray to him? Do we carefully examine this divine prescription? Or do we try to carry this entire heavy burden with our human wisdom and strength?

“The result is that we remove our burden from our head and put it into our lap. We get satisfied and contented for a while.” We must use our human wisdom and energies, but we must ask help from God.“If our circumstances are molded according to our own design we must thank God and this must be the will of God. And if the things we planned do not work out then this also is the will of God.”

Remember my dear friend, God is unchanging.

“God can change our situation, or God can change us.”

We must never forget or forsake the claim of Jesus, “Come unto me and I will give you rest.”

(3) Divine Claim.Human history proves that there is only one person in the world who has ever given this offer or invitation: “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)

 This is the person of Jesus Christ. He not only claimed it but through his death on the cross he proved it. He came into this world so that every single human being on the face of this planet would be set free.I will give you rest.There is great confidence and assurance in this statement.  He did not say that I will try to give you rest, or I will give you rest to some extent. He did not say I will give you 50% rest.  No, the Divine claim is, “I WILL give you rest.” I will grant you absolute rest from all your burdens. God is the perfect God; He has the power to do anything and everything.In the Old Testament Jehovah or Yahweh appeared unto Moses and said,

“I AM THAT I AM:” (Exodus 3:14)

Jesus said the same:

“I am the light of the world:” (John 8:12)

“I am the bread of life.” (John 6:48)

“I am the resurrection, and the life:” (John 11:25)

“I am the good shepherd;” (John 10:14)

“I am the true vine.” (John 15:1)

“Before Abraham was born, I am.” (John 8:58)

“I am the light of the world:” (John 8:12)

May the Lord grant us grace that through the help of God the Holy Spirit, we will focus and concentrate on His claims, and allow His Divine prescription to work in our hearts. And may He thus deliver us from all our heavy burdens.May the Lord Jesus Christ grant you all perfect peace in your hearts and minds so that you may enjoy all of His blessings.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
