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.


A life resting in the LORD is a good life. "Ministry" and service should not be detrimental or damaging in any capacity, when done as God intended. Don't fall into the trap that the more you "do", the better. Your first priority is to be found resting in your Father. Today, before you do anything, lay all of your burdens down and breathe in the rest of the LORD.
