• Today’s poem is based on Jesus’s words in Matthew 11:28. Jesus has made the way for us to enter God’s rest by dying on the cross and rising from the grave for us. If we’ve put our trust in Jesus, we can rest in God’s love and be free from striving. We also have the Holy Spirit as our Helper, who reminds us of Jesus’s words and helps us rest in Him (John 14:26). How might it be comforting to know that, whenever we need help and rest, God is pleased to give us these things?
• In what ways do you need help and rest today? Consider taking a moment to ponder Jesus’s invitation in Matthew 11:28-30, and then talk to Him about anything that’s weighing on you.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28 (NIV)
