Be Still and Know

"Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."  (Matt. 11:28)

There is a great spirit of restlessness in the world today.  People are like the restless sea, seeking peace, but finding instead turmoil and tension, fear and frustration.  The world is in a state of unrest because individuals are in a state of unrest.  Inner strain and pressure build up as a result of a constant round of frenzied activity.

While Jesus was here on earth, He was aware that many people were burdened with the cares of life.  "And what pity He felt for the crowds that came because their problems were so great and they didn't know what to do or where to go for help.  They were like sheep without a shepherd" (Matt. 9:36).  He could also look down the corridor of time and see that even today, people would be carrying heavy burdens; burdens of fear, loneliness, bitterness, inadequacy, sorrow, guilt, and sin.

From a heart filled with love and concern for people, He gave a simple invitation.  "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest - I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls" (Matt 11:28).  This invitation was not just for the people of that day.  It was not just for a selected few but included all people all through the ages.

We do not find rest in the act of coming, but in the One, to Whom we come.  He will release the tension and strain and GIVE us rest.  Today the world is full of heavy-laden people.  They may have a smile on their faces, but hidden behind the smile is a burden almost too heavy to bear.  You may be one of these people.  He is saying to you, "Come to Me.  I want YOU."  Your part is to come; His, to give you rest.  He never turns anyone away.
