Is there something you are worried about today?
Prayer, meditation and music have proven results to reduce worry. But today – I want to take it one step further, so that you can live a life of habitual rest rather than habitual worry.
Join me on this video as we discuss: How to Stop Worrying and Start Resting in God’s Love.
Think of a famous person that you know a lot about. You may know this person’s opinions, beliefs, their likes and dislikes, their achievements and mannerisms. But do you know them personally?
We can study the Bible all day long and learn lots of details about God but still not know God, as a friend and as a father. And if this is the case, then you will only serve him. You will not enjoy a loving relationship with him.
Showing up at church and doing kind things for others, does not give you an intimate relationship with God. Unbelievers can do these things too.
There is a temptation to look forward to heaven for the rewards and a life with no pain, but in John 17:3, Jesus said:
This is eternal life, that they KNOW you,
the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.
Eternal life is not all about heaven and all of its benefits…plus answered prayer lists, here on earth.
What does John 17:3 say eternal life is?
That they KNOW you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.
God wants to be known and has made himself known through is Word and creation. We choose how deep of a relationship we will have with God. He is available 24 hours a day to spend time with. He is alive and he is active in our lives and he wants to do life with you. He wants to help you stop worrying.
In Matthew 11:28-30, Jesus said:
28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Jesus’ load is light!
He is strong – he can carry your back breaking load. You can give him all of your worries and in exchange –find rest for your soul.
Isn’t that what we all long for – rest for our souls?
That’s what Matthew 11:28 and 29 promises!
Jesus says – “COME TO ME!”
Then he promises, “and I will give you rest.”
God holds it out to us.
Rest is available.
Simply go to Him today and tomorrow and the next day and the next. Repeat this every day until you die and see him face to face!
Put an end to your worrying today and start resting in His love.
