Bible Verse of the Day Reflections

Well, we all sometimes feel like giving up in life because of issues we face that are beyond our control. These issues range from sickness, financial difficulties, death of a loved one, workplace challenges etc.

Have you ever reached a point in life where you try to get help from your family, friends and neighbours but the problem never gets a solution?

Have you ever tried to get a solution for an emotional problem using money but your emotional situation remains the same?

Well, I have Good News for you today! The answer or solution to your problem is Jesus Christ. He knows all our weaknesses and also that sometimes the little strength we have can fail us.

Therefore, He invites us to offload all our problems on Him, and in return, He will give us His yoke, which is good to bear and light. Jesus tells us that in Him we will find rest when we go on our knees and pray.

The yoke that Jesus is giving us, is that of humility and meekness. Jesus is saying that we always feel burdened and troubled because we lack humility and meekness. He tells us to be humble and meek, just like Him and we will find rest.

Therefore, when you fall sick, when you are financially constrained, when you are down emotionally, when your friends, family and neighbours desert you, when you are fired by your boss at work, when you are angry, etc, find rest at the feet of Jesus. Go on your knees, with a humble and contrite heart, and tell Jesus all your problems.

Jesus Christ will never let us down when we seek his help. He says that whatever we ask of our Heavenly Father in His name, we will get it. Therefore with humble hearts let’s take our burdens unto Jesus and we will find rest.

Prayer: Lord Jesus Christ, we come before You with humble and contrite hearts. We bring our burdens to You because it is only in You that we can find rest. Give us Your yoke which is good to bear and is light. May You forever sustain in us humility and meekness. Amen.
