More than two centuries ago, Jesus Christ said, “Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden.” this is an invitation for those who are weary of living through the daily bitterness. It is an invitation for those who struggle and do not achieve. It is an invitation for those who are defeated—an invitation for those who have fallen into an exhaustive work routine without motivation.
No one ever came to Jesus and left frustrated. He is the Water of Life that quenches the thirst of the soul. He is the Bread that satisfies the hunger of the spirit. Millions have searched for Him and have received the healing balm of peace that inundates the heart of the tired wanderer
Today could be the day you encounter Jesus. It is so simple. Just open your heart and tell Him that you can’t do it alone. Accept your human limitations and trust in His divine power. Do not go out today to face things that await you without repeating Jesus’ promise to you: “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
What can you do when no one understands your weakness? Where can you go when you feel your strength is reaching its limit?
Today’s verse mentions that even young people get tired, weaken and fall, but those who wait on the Lord will “renew their strength.” [Isaiah 40:31] God does not promise to increase your strength, but to renew your strength as if you were just entering in the struggle again, not rested, but renewed.
God does not only rebuild what is destroyed, but also “makes you knew.” The past has disappeared; there is not just a present in which you have just entered, but also a wonderful future to experience.
