As I’ve mentioned before, God has called me into a season of rest, which is definitely a challenge to obey! However, during this season, as I read Matthew 11:28-30 I find comfort, in a whole new way, so I’d like to share with you!
In my graphic above, I’ve highlighted the key words that spoke to me:
“I will give you REST“
“Take MY yoke”
“I am GENTLE“
“You will find REST“
“My yoke is EASY“
“My burden is LIGHT“
The recurring theme is REST: Finding rest in CHRIST.
Following the dream God’s placed on my heart, while good & purposeful can become an idol in itself if not done in obedience. ===>TWEET THIS
My zeal & my passion, while beneficial in many facets of my life, can also become a hindrance, when God calls me to a place of REST & I struggle to release & obey.
The God-sized dream God’s given me, opened doors for me to walk through, and I love walking, isn’t intended to be a burden. This dream isn’t intended to weigh me down, stress me out, or max out my days. This dream is supposed to come along side the life God’s called me to, and simply BE.
“BE still & know that I am God”. More often than not, I’m guilty of going & doing so much that I forget to just BE. I forget to just allow God to work in me, as I stand still.
Taking the yoke of Christ is FREEING. It’s not a burden!
His Dream for me is Holy, not Heavy.
Walking my God-sized dream needs to be the same way!
So today, I choose to take His yoke for me… it’s light & I need light right now.
How about you, friend? Have you been spinning your hamster wheel, vigorously pursuing your dream, and forgetting to take time to rest? It’s time to fall off that wheel & on to your knees; finding comfort & rest in Christ.
Will you take His Yoke with me?
