ISAIAH 40:25-31; PSALM 103; MATTHEW 11:28-30
Jesus said, “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest”. “Come” is a familiar word in scripture. “Come back to me; come and see; come follow me.” God continues to invite us, desiring what is best for us. He leads us to restful waters, gives us rest and revives our souls. The first reading makes us to understand that God is powerful and there is none like him. Thus, his invitation is life-giving and liberating. Young men said to be agile may go weary but those who come to him (young or old) will find their strength renewed, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Let us go to him in faith and trust and we shall not be disappointed. Let us take his yoke in exchange for our burdens and depressions.
Let us pray
Lord, I draw me nearer. I Thank you for your precious promises that give me comfort and strength. Show me the way to everlasting life. You are the yoke breaker, come and break every yoke against my spiritual and physical progress so that I will be your true friend. Amen.
