28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. – Matthew 11:28-30
The Lord Jesus came to give us a life of peace, prosperity and sweet serenity in the midst of a harsh and troubled world. He has come to give all men rest form their burdens. But sadly, some people has made life one great struggle for themselves, because they’re yet to embrace the glory-life that Jesus brought, “…I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).
Jesus came to make life easy and show us that we could win each and every day. In John 16:33, He said, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world”. He overcame the world not for Himself, but for you. He did it and gave you the victory (1 Corinthians 15:57; 2 Corinthians 2:14) and the power of attorney to use His Name, and keep the world and the devil in subjugation.
Don’t complicate your life by struggling and trying to make things to work by human efforts (Proverbs 3:5), instead of nestling in the Word and resting in the father’s love. Rely on the Holy Spirit to help you in your journey of success, for He is your ever present Helper. Don’t complicate things by running to and fro, trying to get help from men. Don’t stay up late at night trying to humanly reason out the solution to whatever predicament as thought God didn’t care about you (Proverbs 3:21-26).
Remember, He told you to cast your cares upon Him because He affectionately cares for you (1 Peter 5:7). As long as you hold on to the care of this life, it would be difficult for you to enjoy God’s rest and live a fulfilled life. Therefore choose today to enjoy the easy life in Christ, for that’s the life Jesus brought.
