When You Are Tired

Our text will come from Matthew 11: 28-30. 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.

Rest is something we all need at times. Whether from work, school, or just the daily routines of life at one time or another we all can use a little rest.

Even our Lord would take his disciples to a place away from people to have a period of rest. (Mark 6:31)

There are also times that we need spiritual rest.

Many try to find it in good works, religious services, charities, rituals, and even self-motivation but none of these will give you true rest because as our text tells us, rest comes only in Jesus Christ.

He supplies the rest we need and only him. The wicked one will try to load you up with all kinds of works and deeds to make you think they are the things that will give you rest.

Rest only comes through a person not a deed or good works. A deed is a thing, and things can’t give you rest. Only a person can give you relief from your works and toils.

If you have tried many things to get rest, why not try a person; the Lord Jesus Christ. His burden is light and his yoke is easy.

May God help you to find rest in Jesus when you are tired.
