THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
RELEASE YOUR CARES TO THE LORD AND LET HIM FILL YOU WITH HIS PEACE AND JOY
God wants to give you rest. He wants to refresh and restore your soul—your mind, will and emotions. It’s so easy to get caught up in the “BUSYNESS” of life, and before long, your mind, will and emotions are so “SPUN UP” that you can barely THINK straight! But even in the hustle of life, you can find REST, EASE and RELAXATION.
God wants to take care of EVERYTHING that concerns you so that you can find rest in your innermost BEING when you come to HIM.
Imagine how you would feel if someone came up to you today and said, “Give me all of your monthly bills; I’m going to pay them.” You’d get pretty excited, WOULDN’T you? But it wouldn’t happen until you did YOUR part to actually hand that person your BILLS. They can’t pay them for you if you never RELEASE them. In the same way, when we release our CARES and CONCERNS to God, He PROMISES to take care of them.
Today, RELEASE your cares to the Lord. Let Him fill you with His PEACE and JOY. Receive the REST that He promises and enjoy the FULFILLMENT and BLESSING He has for you!
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
Matthew 11:28, NIV
