God will give us rest

God will give us rest

There are some things that really please our Father. One of them is to reveal things to those of us who will believe just like little children do.

God is delighted to show us the way. It pleases him to no end. The way is not difficult or too challenging. Jesus has promised that if we learn from Him that we will find rest.

And so, what does He want us to know? What is God’s goal for us?

  • He will give us rest. It is God’s gift. There is nothing we can do to earn it.
  • Serve Him and we will learn. Our focus cannot be on ourselves.
  • His way is easy, not difficult. God gives us the power and courage.

At that time Jesus said, ‘I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure. ‘All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. ‘

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.’ Matthew 11:25-30
