DCLM Daily Manna 25 March 2020 Devotional By Pastor W.F Kumuyi
TOPIC: Rest For The Restless
READ: Matthew 11:16-30
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.” – (Matthew 11:28)
Imagine that you have no money, friends or food at home. Suddenly, an old friend appears and asks you to tell him your problems. To prove his seriousness, he brings out a checkbook, signs his name and asks you to write any amount of money you need. What will be your reaction?
In our text, Jesus compared men of His generation to children in the streets who would not respond to the call of their friends in spite of their entreaties. He upbraided the cities which were unrepentant in spite of the mighty works done in them. He thereafter appreciated the Father for the revelation of the gospel to mankind and made a solemn call to all who were heavy laden with sins, yokes and cares of life to come to Him for rest.
Many labour in vain and languish in poverty. Others labour in self-righteousness, immorality, idolatry, servitude to Satan, fear, unfulfilled dreams and demonic bondage. There are others who seek healing, protection, wealth and salvation in the wrong places. There are also those who are heavy laden with guilt, anxiety, oppression, depression, obsession, debts, sicknesses and fear of death. Like the man with the open cheque, Jesus wants you to come to Him and write whatever your problems are in His chequebook. You must heed His call now by confessing your sins and forsaking them, accepting Him as your Lord and personal Saviour. When you are yoked with Him, you get and become the best.
DCLM Daily Manna 25 March 2020: Hurry now and follow Him until the end and He will grant you rest here on earth and in heaven. Do not be restless any longer. Go to Jesus and He will give you rest. Take a step and move to Him. He is knocking at the door of your heart. If you hear His voice and open the door, He will come in to you and help you.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
There is rest for those who heed Jesus’ call.
