As I sat down to pray and write today, Papa God poured His deep compassion over me for His sons and daughters who are battle-weary. The compassion that flowed in me felt like strong arms reaching out to hold and lift up the weary ones. As this embrace from Papa God enveloped me for the “weary ones” I heard the words from Matthew 11:28-30:
“Then Jesus said, ‘Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.’”
Allow all of the weariness, the heaviness, and the pain to fall at His feet as you fall into His outstretched arms. He will take the burden that is too heavy for you to carry. As Papa holds you, Jesus’ light burden comes upon you to comfort you and to give you rest.
Do not worry about what is ahead or what lies behind because He is before you and behind you! He is surrounding you with His love and kindness. He is blanketing you with warmth and protection. His angels have been set on guard around you to minister to you and to battle for you.
Your Daddy loves you so very much. His goodness and tenderness is with you, right where you are today. He is the lifter of your head.
“So many are saying, “God will never rescue him!” But you, O Lord, are a shield around me; you are my glory, the one who holds my head high. I cried out to the Lord, and he answered me from his holy mountain. I lay down and slept, yet I woke up in safety, for the Lord was watching over me. I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies who surround me on every side. Arise, O Lord! Rescue me, my God! Slap all my enemies in the face! Shatter the teeth of the wicked! Victory comes from you, O Lord. May you bless your people. ” Psalms 3:2-8
