Matthew 14:13-21 describes a very interesting event during the life and ministry of Jesus on Earth.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” — Matthew 11:28-29 (NIV)
Beloved, are you waiting for the hour of your death to arrive to find rest for your soul? Or are you tired of looking for rest for your weary soul in everything and coming up short? Let me tell you, true rest in not found in death or in anything that is on earth. It’s not found in people, money, relationships, friendships, jobs or education.
They say “the only time you should ever look back is to see how far you have come.” I say, we should take a look back at where God brought us from not to reflect on the distance we have traveled rather the DESTINY change we have received in Christ Jesus. This shall be a reflection that will restore the power of our ministry of reconciliation and one that will encourage us to develop a life structured by an unwavering gratitude for the priceless blood that was shed on our behalf.
