“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
“Stop trying to do it on your own. Stop trying to do everything in your own strength.”—I hear God whispering those very phrases into my ear. Why do I keep trying to go this life alone? Why do I try to make my own plans? God is the one in control, He is the one who has all the strength and wisdom. And the best part is, He isn’t selfish; He gives us strength, wisdom, and rest, we just have to ask for it.
If you are like me today, give all your burdens, stresses, worries, and long to-do lists over to God. He is the one in control of your life; lean on Him for guidance and strength because if you try to do it on your own, you will be left weary and exhausted. He promises to give us rest and take our burdens, but we have to take that first step of faith. If you are having a difficult week full of worries and stresses. If you keep trying to carry your sins, regrets, and past with you. Give all of it over to God. Once you release all of your burdens, God will restore you and fill you with incredible strength and peace.
Let’s stop trying to do everything on our own. It is time we let God take over!
