Good morning.

Jesus invites all those who are burdened to come to Him for rest. Perchance we misunderstand what He is asking of us. We can’t merely dump our problems on the Lord and walk away unchanged.

Using a farming image, He asks us to join Him in the “yoke” so we can walk and work together. In other words, He doesn’t want just our burdens; He wants us!

God’s goal isn’t simply to remove a weighty trial or affliction. He longs to draw us to Himself in a close and trusting relationship. Remember, the “yoke is easy” and the “burden is light” when our Saviour is helping us bear it (Matthew11:30).

The process of sharing the load begins with learning to know and understand the Lord. The burden is not necessarily removed, but the weight of the affliction shifts from our shoulders to His. Life’s pressures may not lessen, but if we are intimately linked with Jesus, our soul will be free from anxiety, and His peace will rule in our heart.

The difficulties of this life are opportunities to walk closely with our Saviour and know Him better. That’s why those who take Him up on His offer will experience an amazing transformation.

Have a good day. Keep warm.

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
