“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
Today, God is telling you to lay down everything to Him and surrender once again.
In our walk with the Lord, sometimes we forget to unload to Him. The reason may be that we want to act as “adults” before the Lord. We act mature by appearing capable of bearing the loads and burdens of life.
But that is not what maturity in the Lord looks like. Maturity in the Lord is surrendering, being dependent, and being humble. As James 4:10 says, “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.”
Moreover, God cannot fill us up if we are already packed – packed with worries, problems, anxieties, and negative thoughts. That’s why, if we really want God to fill every part of us, let us pour out everything to Him until we’re empty so He can fill us with new wine.
So, let us lay down to God everything and receive from Him His everything. Shalom!
