Finding Soul Rest
The Road to Restoration (part 2) | Jesus invites us to be yoked with himself! Being a Christ-follower means being in relationship with Jesus. We come to Him, and we allow ourselves to be bound to Him. And in Him we find our rest, because He is “gentle and humble in heart.” Jesus will lead us gently as we bind our lives to him.
Both the Old and the New Testaments speak of bringing our burdens to God. Psalm 55:22 says, “Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you.” And 1 Peter 5:7 says, “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” As we yoke ourselves to Jesus, we bring Him the good, the bad, and the ugly, all of it, and leave it with Him, and He gives us His peace.
