Spiritual Warfare: 'Come to the Lord for the Rest You Need'

God's Power for Our Battles — Monday, May 24, 2021

Come to me, all who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Place my yoke over your shoulders, and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble. Then you will find rest for yourselves because my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
— Matthew 11:28-30 GWT

Today's Prayer

Lord, I am tired. I'm so tired of this never-ending journey. I am tired of life. I am even tired of being tired. I confess I have followed the ways of the world rather than the ways of Your Son Jesus. It has brought me nothing but fatigue and pain. I need Your rest. I need a place of safety and security, away from the hustle and bustle of the busy world around me. Lead me to Your still waters; lead me to rest. I need your promised lighter burden. Deliver me from the things of this world to that place of peace and rest. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
