Allow God to Walk With You
This scripture verse is so uplifting! Take it with you throughout your days and nights, even memorize it. Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV)
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 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. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Jesus is speaking to all of us in this section of the Book of Matthew and asking us to follow Him, all of you who are tired from trials and difficulties in this life. He tells us to “take my yoke upon you” which means to lean on Him, lean on God, for He is our friend who will help carry us through our trials, tragedies, difficulties in life.
A yoke is a wooden crosspiece that is fastened over the necks of two animals and attached to the plow or cart that they are to pull. A yoke of oxen was used in the past to pull a large plow or a heavy load. Two oxen were yoked together in order for the load to be made easier to move.
Imagine being “yoked” together with Jesus going through life it will make everything that is difficult become lighter. It won’t take away the problem, but just knowing that you have God in your corner not only for support, but also for guidance will only help.
God dwells within all Christians who seek Him. All Christians are indwelt with the Holy Spirit. “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21 Listen to your inner voice, but only if you are indwelt with the Holy Spirit will your inner voice carry you with Jesus through this life of not only trials, but many blessings. God Bless all people and animals!!
