Rest For My Soul

“Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and you shall find rest for your souls (Matthew 11:29).”

That’s all I want. Rest for my soul. That’s it. No striving or straining to get it right, to figure it out. Just rest. Rest for my soul. Peace. A quiet life. Gentleness. Love. Rest for my soul.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea; though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. Selah…. “Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold. (Psalm 46: 1-3, 10-11)

God’s all powerful. He’s got it all taken care of. Be still, be quiet in Him. I can rest in Him.

You shall find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:29
You shall find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:29
Matthew 11:29 you shall find rest for your souls.

“Take my yoke and learn from me…and you shall find rest.” Jesus was perfectly obedient to His Father. That’s His yoke. That’s what I learn from Him. Jesus knew His Father had it all taken care of like in Psalm 46. That’s rest. Perfect obedience. Gentleness. Humility. Rest for my soul. Compassion. Amen.
