Come

Matthew 11:28 AMP Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy- laden and over-burdened and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls].

1 Peter 5:7 AMP Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns,once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you.

Matt 6:34AMP So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble.

I woke up this morning with these three scriptures going through my head and they spoke so many things to me. He said for us to come to Him, seek Him and His will rather than laboring in vain for our own agendas. Our agendas won't bring us peace.

We're to cast ALL of our cares on Him. We need to lay down all of our worries and fears. He never meant for us to carry the loads we inflict upon ourselves

We need to learn and discipline ourselves to live on day at a time. We miss the blessings of this day because we're fretting over yesterday or tomorrow. We can't get yesterday back and we're not guaranteed tomorrow. Matthew 6:34 says that each day brings a new set of problems, so each day we need to cast our cares on Him.

Father, please help each of us to take this message and apply it to ourselves and our lives. We all long for peace and we want to rest in You. In Jesus' name. Amen
