Find Rest

by Joel Osteen

Today's Scripture

"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" (Matthew 11:29, NIV).

Today's Word

Sometimes the day-to-day pressures of life can cause unnecessary stress. In fact, many people lose sleep, worrying about things or people in their lives. But God doesnít want us to live stressed out and overwhelmed. He wants us to live a life of rest and peace.

When Jesus walked on this earth, He took time for Himself. He got away from the crowds. He spent time with the Father. Thatís how He found rest. He was gentle and humble in heart. Do you ever notice that when you are stressed out or worrying about something, youíre less tolerant of others? Youíre more likely to say something you donít really mean. Today, God wants you to cast your cares on Him and live with a gentle and humble attitude. When you release your burdens and follow the example of Jesus, you will find rest for your soul. You will be rejuvenated and refreshed! You will find peace in your heart, and you will move forward in the abundant life God has for you!

A Prayer for Today

Heavenly Father, today I choose to cast my cares on You. Teach me, Holy Spirit, to have a gentle and humble attitude. Help me find rest for my soul so that I can love others the way You love me. In Jesusí Name. Amen.
