Matthew 11:28-30 (AMP)
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]
Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls.
For My yoke is wholesome (useful, good--not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light and easy to be borne.
The Lord wants daily fellowship and communion with us. However, God will not intrude or crash down the door of our hearts to make us fellowship with Him. He will not compete with the clamor of this world for your attention. God is with us and dwells in every believer in Christ. We must draw near to Him and seek Him. We must desire communion with Him.
The world is speaking and calling for our attention every day. It seeks to distract and allure you away from your God given purpose. The flesh, the world and the devil screams for your attention 24/7. There are things designed to capture you attention and your interest, in an attempt to pull your heart and devotion toward it and away from God. Don’t surrender to its sway.
God has a purpose for your life but it will only be fulfilled as we closely follow Him. God does not seek to draw your attention through the lust of the eye. He will quietly appeal to your spirit. The scripture reveals to us that the spirit of man is the candle of the Lord. God will lead and guide us through our born-again spirits. But this happens only as we yield to Him, He will not force us to come to Him.
Purpose in your heart to diligently seek the Lord every day. Turn your attention several times throughout the day to Him and cultivate your devotion and fellowship with Him.
