2.5 Seeking God – Weary & Burdened

"Hope is a song in a weary boat." - Pauli Murray

Weary

Feeling or showing extreme tiredness, especially as a result of excessive exertion

Burdened

Cause (someone) worry, hardship, or distress or loaded heavily.

1. The Bible Scriptures:

– Let’s see what the Bible has to say about God’s rest John.

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

  • Isn’t it that we have tried sooooo many times and keep on failing?
  • That plan that you have followed might be your plan and not God’s plan for you. (Jer 29:11)
  • You did not get advice about your plan from other people. (Pr 11:14)
  • Are we living outside of God’s will and still expect Him to bless us? (Mat 7:21-23)
  • You might be clinging to your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires. (Eph 4:22-24)
  • You find rest because your hope is in God and He renews your strength. (Isaiah 40:30-31)
  • You will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Rom 12:2)
  • God will restore to me the joy of my salvation and grant me a willing spirit to sustain. (Ps 51:10-12)
  • Well the World causes you to be weary and burdened.
  • God’s yoke let’s you find rest for your soul and be at peace, how God designed us to be.  
  • The world is selfish, harsh, unloving and unforgiving. 
  • God is gentle and humble in heart. 
"God loves you. He wants you to succeed. He wants the best for you."
  •  
  •  So the question here is do you like being weary and burdened?
  • Do you want to find rest?
  • What kind of master do you want to serve harsh and unforgiving or humble and gentle?
  • Do I want to keep on failing?

"The soul is kissed by God in it's innermost regions. With interior yearning, grace and blessings are bestowed. It is a yearning to take on God's gentle yoke, it is a yearning to give one's self to God's way!"

2. Close

John this verse is such an amaizing promise of rest and rest for your soul. So we do not need to go on another weekend just to calm down and relax and get into the rat race.

Francois I would rather have a gentle and humble master than a master who causes me to become weary and burdened.

–  John can you please close us out in a prayer?
  • My pleasure, Francois.
  • Good afternoon Father.
  • I do want to humble myself before you so I can receive that rest for my soul you promised me. 
  • You are such a kind God but you want me to come to you out of my own.
  • God I know that my plans might keep on failing if you do not bless them.
  • I know my life would be blessed so much more if I just come to you. 
  • Amen.
