God’s Promises

Blog - Burned Out
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” 
Matthew 11:28-30

Wow…what a beautiful piece of scripture…and a bull’s eye!  I am tired…and yes, feeling worn out.  I am tired of doing good, running the race and all that jazz that comes with being a Christian.  I am weary. But what made the message so powerful this weekend was the promises.

Come to me…I’ll show you real rest…keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly. Scripture is full of promises…including the promise to be faithful to His promises.  Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.
Hebrews 10:23

I encourage you today to open your Bibles.  Read the Word. Come to Jesus and let him refresh you…sit at his feet.  Read and claim the promises…use them in your prayer time to build your relationship with God.
