Come To Me
Today's Passage: Matthew 11: 25-30
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
25. At that time Jesus prayed this prayer: "O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, thank you for hiding these things from those who think themselves wise and clever, and for revealing them to the childlike.
26. Yes, Father, it pleased you to do it this way!
27. "My Father has entrusted everything to me. No one truly knows the Son except the Father, and no one truly knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him."
28. Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will
give you rest.
29. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
30. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light."
Matthew 11:25-30 NLT
3rd strategy for familiar passages. Read Anew!
Read the passage from Last to First!
Sometimes we have read a passage of Scripture so many times we can't see it with new eyes.
How can we change the passage without changing the meaning?
What would we see if we take a passage and begin with the last verse and read the verses from Chapter 11.
For example: Chapter11:25-30.
Thank you Jesus for often showing us how to pray.
We find that you are constantly teaching us how to lean into Your Father.
Thank you for giving us more structure, more understanding of You.
When we lean into God, the Three in One, we find that our souls are met with strength and courage to carry into hard places You have called us into.
Please allow us to glorify You in our obedience.
In Your Holy Name I pray,
Please leave you name and your last initial in the comments below.
If God gives you some insight, please share.
We pray for you daily.
