Encouragement for Today-107. Tuesday: October 20, 2020

“Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart,

and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

Matthew 11:29-30. (ESV)

A recent report says, “We can have it all.” By working longer, playing harder and

multitasking, it’s possible to squeeze thirty-one hours into twenty-four. But it’ll

cost you! The average worker is bombarded with 220 messages via email, text,

phone, and other interruptions. One in three workers get sick because of

information overload. If technology is saving us all this time and energy, how

come we’re so frazzled? When the checkout line doesn’t move fast enough or we

can’t find a parking space, we have a meltdown. Madison Avenue and Wall Street

won’t tell you this, but success brings more opportunities for the Enemy to run

you into the ground. That’s no way to live, and it certainly isn’t what God intended

for you.

Jesus said: “Are you tired? Worn out?…Come to me…recover your life. I’ll

show you how…work with me-watch how I do it…learn to live freely and lightly.

(Matthew 11:28-30 TM). Sounds good, doesn’t it, but it calls for detoxing your

thinking and reprograming it. One author writes: “The Lord will not relieve the

pressure, while you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time doing the wrong thing

with the wrong people. If you neglect loved ones, His hands are tied because

your priorities are out of order. When you’re in God’s will you can work hard, but

travel light! He’ll carry your burdens and take the weight. Simplifying your life

may mean working fewer hours, scheduling downtime and investing more into

your loved ones. Our gifts, assignments, personalities and situations are all

different, but these principles hold true for everyone.”

So, simplify your life!

Remember It’s all about Jesus!
