Finding Rest and Surrendering to God: A Biblical Perspective
As we go through the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and burnt out. But did you know that God promises to give us rest? In Matthew 11:28-30, Jesus says, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
So how can we surrender to God and find rest in Him? Here are 5 biblical examples of rest and surrender:
Psalm 46:10 - "Be still, and know that I am God."
Exodus 20:8-10 - "Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy."
Matthew 6:33 - "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well."
