Climbing Another Hill

Matthew 11:28-30 Come to me all of you who are tired from the heavy burden you have been forced to carry. I will give you rest. Accept my teaching. Learn from me. I am gentle and humble in spirit. And you will be able to get some rest. Yes, the teaching that I ask you to accept is easy. The load I give you to carry is light.

There are times when we just feel exhausted. Just living life is hard enough, but following Jesus … well, just like He promised, that makes things even harder. So the temptation is to give up – to turn back.

Some years back my wife, daughter and I went on a family holiday to a stunningly beautiful beachside town with rain forests, blue lagoons, and sandy beaches. On our last day, we walked up a mountain in the hinterland. It was quite a trek. Each steep climb seemed to end with a false crest, and yet another.

I was wondering whether we’d ever make it to the top with our then fourteen year old daughter. We kept encouraging her, “We’re almost there,” and with the odd rest in the shade, we made it to the top to behold the most stunning vista you could ever imagine.

Life sometimes seems to be one false crest after another, one steep climb after the next. But if we’d just stop in the shade for a rest and listen out, we’d hear His voice.

Matthew 11:28-30 Come to me all of you who are tired from the heavy burden you have been forced to carry. I will give you rest. Accept my teaching. Learn from me. I am gentle and humble in spirit. And you will be able to get some rest. Yes, the teaching that I ask you to accept is easy. The load I give you to carry is light.

You’re almost there. Don’t give up. You can make it. I love you. I’m with you. With all my heart, that’s what I believe Jesus wants you to receive into your heart.

Come to me all of you who are tired from your heavy burdens and I will give you rest.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.

So encouraging to hear this today. Its been a looong time of trusting God after twenty years of waiting for a breakthrough in our family life. Glad to be reminded today that listening for God’s Voice in the midst of the journey and not giving up is key. The Lord bless you.
