Food for thought | Real Rest
Don’t we all need rest – Rest for body and the soul? Sometimes whatever we have, good family, skills which make us feel good about overselves, appreciated by others, money, possessions… still is there some restlessness within ourselves? Some sort of discontentment even if we are much fortunate and prosperous than many others in the world? Something innermost which money and relationships alone cannot satisfy? That inner restlessness and lacking something which doesn’t seem to be satisfied by nothing in this world.
God has created us with a longing within us to seek after Him. Whatever the world offers cannot satisfy that inner restlessness.
Only Jesus can.
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
