For Reading: Matthew 11:25-28
MEMORY VERSE: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
During His earthly ministry, the Lord Jesus revealed the real cruel nature of the Devil and his host of demons. He showed that the Devil was a wicked tasked master who enslaves people with all manner of sickness, mental derangement, physical infirmities, etc.
In our day, we have seen young people burdened with addictions to drugs, sex, pornography, etc. Some have been hired to experiment with the occult and have become enslaved to demonic powers. Wrong attributes and habits, like kleptomania, negative self-esteem, envy, and arrogance are holding many captive.
Our Lord comes with refreshing news to all who are tired and heavy-laden. He is able and willing to give rest. He heals the sick and restores wholeness. He casts out devils, restores mental sanity. He cleanses lepers and brings back social acceptability. In whatever bad circumstances we find ourselves, our Lord Jesus Christ calls us to rest.
• Am I burdened by any habit?
• Am I in bondage to any demonic influence?
Dear Lord, in my moment of anxiety, let me enjoy your rest. Amen.
Jesus is the rest for the weary soul.
