“Then Jesus said, ‘Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest’.” Matthew 11:28
As John the Baptist found himself wasting away in prison his disappointed and weary heart led him to question things. Was Jesus actually the Messiah at all?
Where do you turn when life’s circumstances and disappointments leave you weary? The answer isn’t found in our enemy and the things of this world, and it sure isn’t found in doubting or questioning our faith. The answers can only be found in Jesus Himself.
There will be times and days when life’s disappointments will try their best to overshadow us and cause our hearts to grow weary. But it is especially in those moments that we must seek Him, trust Him and cling to Him, even when disappointments leave us with no answers. We must keep on believing that while the devil is good at being a bad devil, our Heavenly Father is great at being an awesome God!
Today, let us remember that when circumstances try to make us weary, it is in Jesus, and He alone, that we can find true rest.
