I used to be a constant worrier- worrying about every thing from the sultry weather to the Syrian Refugee problem. I knew ‘ worrying , does not take me anywhere. In fact, ‘ worrying, halts all your actions! I knew it all! Still I “worried!
Worrying Is Carrying Your Own Burden!
One day, it dawned on me worrying is nothing but carrying all my burden on my back. If I want to feel free, I need to transfer the burden to some one. That some one should be willing to carry my burden, should be reliable and should be capable of handling it.
You must be wondering whether any one fitting my above expectations would ever be available! Cool down! You need not put an advertisement seeking one!
Behold! Here Is The Offer! “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” –Jesus Christ says in Matthew 11:28-30 of the Holy Bible says. Hand over all your problems and burden to Jesus Christ. Trust Him to take care of all your burden. Sleep in peace, for there is one who never sleeps to take care of all your burdens! “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” What an offer!Please note that this offer is open to all,not only to Christians ,as many may think erroneously.
Submission to God’s Will
Often we get disturbed by what’s happening in this world ,right before our eyes.We want to change it as if we are God ! We forget the fact that nothing happens in this world without His will ! Yes ! His will is supreme and every one is subject to His will for this world ! As I am sitting awake midnight disturbed by every thing that’s happening in this confused India,God showed me the right verse Job 22.21 “Yield now and be at peace with Him; Thereby good will come to you.”Bible has so many verses on submission to God’s supreme will.
Heb 12.9 “Furthermore, we had earthly fathers to discipline us, and we respected them; shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of spirits, and live?”
Ja 4.7 “Submit therefore to God Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”
Mat 26.39 “And He went a little beyond them, and fell on His face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as You will.”
1Cor 15.27 “For HE HAS PUT ALL THINGS IN SUBJECTION UNDER HIS FEET But when He says, “All things are put in subjection,” it is evident that He is excepted who put all things in subjection to Him. When all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, so that God may be all in all.”
Psa 119.133 “Establish my footsteps in Your word, And do not let any iniquity have dominion over me.”
As I close my Bible ,I am reminded of Zec 4.6 “’Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty” .I surrender all to Him !What ever change I pray for shall be done ,not by my might or power but by His spirit ,in His time. !
Hand over your problems to the God who never sleeps ,so that you can sleep in peace!Try and you will know that it works more than you thought!
