Matthew 11:30 “For MY yoke is easy and MY burden is light.”
The Master’s Measures!
Praise the LORD of the Harvest, both sowing and reaping each day Life progresses.
How great is HIS NAME! Praise your HEALER, most sovereign, removing and giving;
WHOSE movements assure every burden is measured. As such, not too great that we cannot continue…
though Grief fill our hearts or our souls feel thrown down.
With such masterful weaving of help found promoting our faith to grow greater, so stand we this Hour!
For as long as Breath surges or lingers within us, “we know that we know!” HIS great purpose abounds!
So lift us afresh in this moment of Struggle; revive these — our spirits — with hopes sent from Heaven!
For to THEE we petition, Grant strength for Today!” since our burdens feel greater than Yesterday’s closing.
Yet onward, undaunted, unmoved by Doubt’s pressures, we rise from our prayers to serve forward — no matter the Weight!
As HIServant gladly carrying HIS provision of Hope for as long as HE wills,
Devotional: 1 Corinthians 10:13 “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but GOD is faithful, WHO will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”
Who hasn’t heard both of these verses? Who hadn’t questioned their meaning at times or perhaps their accuracy too?
Thus we’ve fallen, not in sin, but at HIS feet broken…beyond any counting and past every measure.
But breath in our lungs each morning finds us conscious and able to do something in HIS sovereign service!
So my words are meant to uplift
and to shoulder your burden with you in Faith. Galatians 6:2 “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of CHRIST.”
John 13:34 connects to this so wonderfully! “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another!”
So fulfilling the Law of CHRIST — in helping to carry other’s burdens — means expressing the very love of JESUS for others!
Whether then we must crawl out of bed just to limp to the side of another, we are so commanded and how great is our reward in Heaven!
This is for every giving heart who wonders, “Am I making a difference? Am I helping at all?”
YES! Yes! Revelation 22:12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and MY reward is with ME, to give to every one according to his work.”
Notice HE says, “Reward!” Then “Press on and press through!” to the next wounded soul…for HE sees whose hearts are bent towards HIM!
Amen and amen!
