The Lord cares about you and wants to give you rest.

“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” Matthew 11:28-30, Berean Study Bible.

One morning I woke up and began to pray. After a few thank you, Lord, for this and that, God did what He always does. He wanted to know what was really going on with me. I said Father, my mind feels all cluttered and burdened down. I need you to lift all of this off of me. A few minutes later, I began to sing, and my singing turned into worship and praise, and just like that, all of the burdens and heaviness I was feeling were completely gone. God answered my prayer.

This is the benefit of getting real with God in prayer. It makes no sense for us to come to God and leave His presence still weighed down with the responsibilities of life and carrying everything. So He calls to us to come to Him, not just to thank Him, not just to tell Him how powerful and mighty He is, but to receive the rest Jesus came to give us.

My sister, the Lord cares about you, and He wants to give you rest in eternity and rest in your life right now. Not a power nap, but sweet rest in your soul, which is your mind, will, and your emotions. He is calling us to a divine rest that is not just for a moment but for life. How we receive this is by coming to Him and being real with Him. We will leave His presence lighter and at peace.

Prayer: Father, I come to you, and I ask that you lift these burdens off of my mind. I feel weighed down, and I give it to you. Thank you for putting a song in my heart to sing. Thank you for reminding me that you care about me. You are calling me to live in your divine and sweet rest. I receive and accept your call to rest in you. I give everything I am to you. All I’ve been carrying, you can take it from here. I trust you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  7. Thank you Kesha, l really needed this…we are so close and the devil is attacking so very hard right now. Spiritual warfare is real, some days I feel like I am white knuckling it through as I go outside to pray and read scripture but the devil is feeding me fear and lies and anxiety all day. Thank you, I needed this…
