The living Word of God

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of hearts; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.” Matthew 11:27-30

This means giving all your anxiety, worries, concerns and control to Jesus Christ. When people say Give it to God, they are referring to this scripture. If you can find the humility by dumping the pride, and you can admit that you are not the one in control and that you need God’s guidance, you will find a rest and peace you never thought possible. You may wonder if that is true why do people seem to fall back into that worry and anxiety even if they believe in God. It’s because we are sinners and we constantly fall away from God and try to control everything. The truth is we have free will to do whatever we want and if we want to live a life of peace it has to be one that we relinquish to God’s will. If we continuously fight our true purpose then we will always be stressed. If we instead step out of the way and pray for the will of God to be manifested in our own lives our mindset, and in turn iour lives will change for the better. Try it and see the difference over time.
