His Yoke is Easy

Rest my child. Come to Papa God. Rest in the loving arms of Jesus. His yoke is easy and He will give you rest.  Come away to a quiet place today.

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-10 NKJ

 

God is greater – greater than whatever we are facing today. He is greater than fear, greater than disease, greater than lack, greater than our jobs, our money, or any other thing that may try to lead us astray. God is greater than any devil, any curse, or any witchcraft. He is even greater than our hearts. His plans for us are even better than the ones we have for ourselves.

 

Let’s bring him our baggage, our doubts, our shame – and leave it at the cross of Calvary. He paid for it. He doesn’t want us to try and carry it all on our own anyway. He is greater!

 

GREATER

By MercyMe

Bring your tired
And bring your shame
Bring your guilt
And bring your pain
Don’t you know that’s not you’re name
You will always be much more to me

Every day I wrestle with the voices
That keep telling me I’m not right
But that’s alright

‘Cause I hear a voice and He calls me redeemed
When others say I’ll never be enough
And greater is the One living inside of me
Than he who is living in the world
In the world
In the world
And greater is the One living inside of me
Than he who is living in the world

Bring your doubts
And bring your fears
Bring your hurt
And bring your tears
There’ll be no condemnation here
You are holy, righteous and redeemed

Every time I fall
There’ll be those who will call me
A mistake
Well that’s OK

‘Cause I hear a voice and He calls me redeemed
When others say I’ll never be enough
And greater is the One living inside of me
Than he who is living in the world
In the world
In the world
And greater is the One living inside of me
Than he who is living in the world

(He’s Greater, He’s Greater)

There’ll be days I lose the battle
Grace says that it doesn’t matter
‘Cause the cross already won the war
He’s Greater, He’s Greater

I am learning to run freely
Understanding just how He sees me
And it makes me love Him more and more
He’s Greater, He’s Greater

There’ll be days I lose the battle
Grace says that it doesn’t matter
‘Cause the cross already won the war
He’s Greater, He’s Greater

I am learning to run freely
Understanding just how He sees me
And it makes me love Him more and more
He’s Greater, He’s Greater

‘Cause I hear a voice and He calls me redeemed
When others say I’ll never be enough
And greater is the One living inside of me
Than he who is living in the world
In the world
In the world
And greater is the One living inside of me
Than he who is living in the world

There’ll be days I lose the battle
Grace says that it doesn’t matter
‘Cause the cross already won the war
He’s Greater, He’s Greater

I am learning to run freely
Understanding just how He sees me
And it makes me love Him more and more
My God is greater (He’s Greater, He’s Greater)
Than he who is living in the world

Preceded by Chaos

The Body of Christ is so weary, including me.  Yes, it’s Monday. And I fall down at the feet of my Savior and cry out, “How long Lord, how long?” We desperately need a new breath of God. Everything we thought we knew has come to naught. The new wind of the Spirit will revive us. So we sit and search and wait. Just like those folks did in the Upper Room. I’m sure those Disciple guys felt like their world was falling apart into complete chaos. But the best was yet to come!

Let’s pray and sing psalms together and wait for what God promised.

What promise are you waiting on?

Here are 3 Promises I am holding onto these days:

 

  1. I am waiting on the promise that, “Not by might, not by strength, but by My Spirit.” We are so blessed to have a congregation of worshippers. Praise and worship brings in the presence of God like a breath of fresh air. God knows what we need, and when we need it to. He promised to provide – not only in the physical world, but in the spiritual realm as well. He knows his kiddos are tired and He has the oil of joy that will break the yokes of bondage. The anointing of GOD is in the oil – the Holy Spirit. Thank you Holy Spirit –  lead us, comfort us, guide us into all truth, in Jesus Name.
  2. And I am waiting on “Everything your hand touches will prosper.” I have seen it happen in my children’s lives. They are so blessed beyond belief the don’t even know it.  I am grateful that God has shown them all tremendous favor.  And I am grateful for the new season He is bringing me and my husband into. I don’t want to camp in the valley. I don’t even really like camping. And I know what the valley looks like. I’m ready for a new view. How about you?
  3. And, “I will restore the years the locust have eaten. ”  I have to believe that God can make some use out of my messed up life. I didn’t think all that junk would happen. Maybe you didn’t either. Sometimes the best intentions end up going haywire. Sometimes covenants are not kept due to no fault of your own. Sometimes junk just happens. We live in a fallen world.

“Life is a hell of a thing to happen to a person.”

~Rossi on Criminal Minds

But I survived, and so did you.  In fact, God can make good come out of whatever the enemy used to try to destroy you. Look at Joseph. Look at Job. Don’t give up yet – your story isn’t over yet my friends. And neither is mine. Let’s see where God takes us. I hear He is a really good driver. He knows the way. And I  don’t even think He needs Google Maps!
