Matthew 11 – Trust and Rest (I needed that!)

Today, I took great pleasure reading the following from Matthew 11:

25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. 26 Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure.

Most of the time, I feel like a child when it comes to understanding the Christian walk. I believe there is something significant in having the faith of a child – trusting for no good reason, not over-thinking, not judging – just trusting God. I want to be more like that.

And, of course, this well-known passage came at a good time today:

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

The encouragement for you today:

Trust!  Rest!

peace,
