ARE YOU TIRED?
“Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it: Except the Lord keeps the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.” Psalm 127:1
IN JESUS TODAY:
Oh what needless pains we bear! Oh what tiresome days we wear! Such burdens, such toil, all of it is unnecessary! Man’s ways all too often rely on themselves and their own strength, their skill, and supposed wisdom. Yet they toil in vain not realizing that they are wasting time, expending unnecessary energy, and bearing the pains of frustration. They build for themselves alone! For their own glory! Then they are often found complaining of unhappiness.
JESUS HAS A BETTER WAY…
Jesus has taught us a better way, a much easier way to build and to achieve, as we read,
“Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest, take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek of heart and you shall find rest unto your souls.” Mathew 11:28, 29
The problem that we all have shared at one time in our lives is that we all have resisted coming to Jesus' way, because we didn’t know, or we would rather take the credit for ourselves, or we were too impatient to wait on God to do it, sometimes we simply need to wait, as we read,
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
There are many reasons why we have resisted God’s way in the past and have chosen not to come to him, but it is always clear, his ways are the best way for us to live and to build! There is no doubt that God can do all that we ask him, we just hesitate to ask! So take a break from your labor and come to God and lay it all at his feet! Then put your hope in him and wait for him to do it! This is good, as we read,
“It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.” Lamentation 3:26
So God will allow anyone who resists his way to toil in vain!
Are you tired? Come to Jesus and he will give you rest!
