September 5, 2010 – There are so many of us on this journey who truly desire to live a life that honors God. We come to church and work hard practicing self discipline only to end up like a stringed instrument that is wound up too tight. We become rigid in our determination to serve Him to the point that we can snap at any moment because we are bending under the weight of trying to do good and please God. Today we are reminded that God sends an invitation to all who are weary and heavy laden. He invites us to come into a power and a rest that is not our own. The call is to those who know they are dependent on God alone. The secret place of God’s rest is not found in strength but in weakness. It’s not found in knowledge but in complete trust in Him. Declare your trust in Jesus and He will take you into the secret place of His presence.
