Learning to rest

August 24, 2023

“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. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” -Matthew 11:28-30

Are you tired? Overwhelmed? Stressed out? God’s Word tells us we don’t have to live that way. When we walk with Jesus, He’ll do the heavy lifting for us and we can learn to breathe slowly and easily because He has lightened our load.

That’s the message we hear in Matthew 11 and that’s also the message we hear from Ga-ram in South Korea. He shares:

“I'm listening to the broadcast on the way home from work. Many hard things have happened today, and I didn’t handle them all well. My exhausted body and mind feel comforted by this Bible teaching. Thanks to God I will arrive home refreshed. Thank you so much for teaching God’s Word in a way that we can easily understand! I pray that everyone who listens to the program will experience the peace that God offers when we give Him our sin and let Him carry our burdens and worries.”

What a great reminder. Today as we pray for THRU the BIBLE as it goes out in South Korea, let’s thank God for His promises in all our lives.

Father, thank You for Your Word that teaches us to rest in You. We pray more people in South Korea hear it and choose to be still before You. As we study together, speak to our hearts so we can know You more. Help us to cast our cares upon You and fill us with Your peace as we put our trust in You alone. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Less than 6% of Taiwanese people know Jesus. Join us tomorrow as we pray for more to hear as God’s Word goes out on THRU the BIBLE.
