Hi, this is Rich Marshall. I’m the host of God At Work on GOD TV and so glad to join you today on God Today. I want to talk to you about finding rest in the middle of the strife and trials of your life. The Bible says and this is the words of Jesus, “Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.” The answer to finding rest in Him is simply getting into His presence. It’s not a complicated thing. He says come to me and I’ll give it to you.
Rest in this sense is not a rest from work. It’s finding strength in the middle of your work. So, it’s just finding a way to be involved in God’s work and letting Him carry the heavy load and the way to do it is simply this, come to me. So, the Lord says come to me. How do you do it? You pray. How do you do it? You praise. How do you do it? You read the Bible. How do you do it? You say Lord, I want to come to you and when you come to Him, He gives a promise. His promise is I will give you rest. This is for the weary, this is for the heavy laden, this is for some of you. So, today this is one of those days when you can come to Him.
Let me pray for you right now. Father, we know that the answer to rest is coming to you and we’re going to come to you right now. Thank you, Lord, that you answer our prayers. Thank you, Lord, that you are there for us when we cry out to you. Thank you, Lord, that even right now, the weary and the tired can find rest. Not talking about physical rest, Lord, I’m talking about the rest for our mind that we need to know that we’re in Your hands. Thank you so much. In Jesus’ name. God bless you and have a great day.
