"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." NIV
"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." KJV
When our vehicles run out of gas, we go to the gas station to fill the tank. When we are hungry we go to where there is food to eat. Likewise, when we are spiritually and emotionally tired and worn out, we go to Jesus our Lord. He is the only One who can give us rest for our souls and refreshment in our spirits so we can continue on strong in faith through this life.
Heavenly Father, we never seem to forget where to go when we need gas for our cars or when we need food for our stomachs, but we fail to come to You when our spirits are weary. Give us wisdom and discernment to know when we need to come to You for refreshment and rest for our souls. In Jesus' name, Amen.
