Life today is full of stress. People tend to be weighed down with worry and the weight of their responsibilities. Depression and burnout are common. This is the case nearly as often amongst Christians as it is with everyone else. Unfortunately it's also the case with a great many ministers too. But Jesus promises something different. He said His yoke is easy and His burden is light. Jesus promises us rest. Jesus told us that when we follow Him and seek the Kingdom of God first we no longer have to strive to get ahead. Instead we can rest in His finished work. All that stress you're feeling today because your to-do list is so long? Give it over to Jesus. Trust Him to supernaturally guide you and prioritize what must be done first. And also trust Jesus to help you clean up any messes from things that you don't get done today. When you do, you will find things get sorted much more quickly than you expected. Supernatural peace and rest is available to you if you will choose to receive it.
Come to me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest. — Matthew 11:28 (WEB)
