Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:28 – 30)
How many times in your life have you felt all alone? You might even be in a crowded room with lots of people around, yet your soul is in need of the fellowship; yes, one good friend. There may be family, friends or other acquaintances available; but the connection isn't there. This is when your eternal soul needs HIM. No one can touch your inner man as Jesus does. He knows how to comfort, advise, listen and cause your soul to triumph over natural circumstances. Jesus knows there will be laborers of heaviness, because of this world's disobedience.
When anyone understands who Jesus is, this then putting a great value on their soul, most likely there will be times of brokenness. It's no wonder the psalmist wrote, "the sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou will not despise." (Psalm 51:17)
When you go to Jesus do you see a man who was rejected, despised, hated and endured trials of cruel markings in this world? A man who was challenged by this world's authority and error?
What ever your plight, HE will love you like no one else can. The rest is yours.
