Matthew 11:28

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” (KJV)


“Come to Me, all you who labor (kopiao: toil, grow weary, tired, exhausted – as with toil or burdens or grief) and are heavy-laden (phortizo: burdened upon, loaded down), and I will give you rest (anapauo: refresh, to cause or permit one to cease from any movement or labor in order to recover and collect his strength; to keep quiet, of calm and patient expectation).”


Come to me all who have become exhausted, weary and loaded down with burdens. I will give you refreshing in order to collect your strength.


Within Jesus lies the answer to our every need. We all get distracted by the cares of earthly life, but it’s how we respond that it key. As you start a new week today, be mindful throughout to go to Him and find your rest. His rest is perfect, His peace and refreshing, beyond compare.
