For my yoke is easy and my burden light

For my yoke is easy and my burden is light

Jesus says to us in the book of Matthew, Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV)

What does this mean for us?

It is harder to not try and live like Jesus than it is to try and live like Jesus. When ever we chose to turn away and follow our plan and not Gods there are always pitfalls and eventually most of us turn back to Jesus and repent and start living right with God again…. Until we turn away again. We must remember God is always there for us, he knows what we are going to do and holds the master plan.

Like everyone else, I have turned and done my own thing many times. I now remind myself daily that God holds the plan for me and I just need to seek Him and all will be revealed in His time not mine. In the meantime I can study the word and do my best to do His work.

Today I pray

Father allow me to take the easy yoke and the light burden, for too long I have done things the hard way and now choose to follow you whole heartedly. Give me the strength knowledge and wisdom to follow you and do what is right, you God hold my future and the plan for me. I pray that I have the patience to wait until you reveal this plan to me and that I am able to walk worthy of you.

In Jesus name

I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!

You’re important to God, and you’re important to us at When it comes to prayer, we believe that God wants to meet your needs and reveal His promises to you. So whatever you’re concerned about and need prayer for we want to be here for you! Or even if you just want to say Hi, you can contact us
