"Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." NIV
"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 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. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." KJV
If we follow the command of Jesus Christ with all our hearts, and effortlessly rest our burdens on Him, we will find His burden is easy. Under the gentle pressure of His burden, we will receive the power to persevere to the end. The Lord Jesus Christ carries our burdens so much better than we do.
Heavenly Father, we praise You that You allow us to give You our burdens. We gladly take Your yoke that is light and easy. Please give us Your grace and mercy to do this without resistance. In Jesus' name, Amen.
