Jesus Said...

NOTE: Enjoy this guest post from my husband and fellow Pastor, Greg Bishop.

And Jesus said, "Come unto me all ye that... are heavy laden and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28)

How many times have we complained about our load being too heavy? I know I have many times. It’s the natural thing to do. It’s the human thing to do.

1 Peter 5:7 tells us to cast all our cares upon Him for He cares for us. This seems like more than natural, and more than human, this seems like it would be Supernatural! And it is.

Jesus knows our weaknesses, He knows our limits, and He knows our needs. Most of the time we, in our humanness, think we have to solve our problems all by ourselves, but it just doesn’t work that way. As Christians, we just need to get out of the way and let the Lord work. We need to give Him our burdens, our cares, our worries, our fears... and trust Him to take care of them.

Is it easy? By no means! But it's crucial to a right relationship with Him.
