Called to Care – Day 25

An invitation to rest in the Lord

Bible text(s)

28“Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke and put it on you, and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in spirit; and you will find rest. 30For the yoke I will give you is easy, and the load I will put on you is light.”

Matthew 11:28-30GNBOpen in Bible reader

Confidence in God's Protection

1I wait patiently for God to save me;

I depend on him alone.

2He alone protects and saves me;

he is my defender,

and I shall never be defeated.

3How much longer will all of you attack someone

who is no stronger than a broken-down fence?

4You only want to bring him down from his place of honour;

you take pleasure in lies.

You speak words of blessing,

but in your heart you curse him.

5I depend on God alone;

I put my hope in him.

6He alone protects and saves me;

he is my defender,

and I shall never be defeated.

7My salvation and honour depend on God;

he is my strong protector;

he is my shelter.

8Trust in God at all times, my people.

Tell him all your troubles,

for he is our refuge.

Psalms 62:1-8GNBOpen in Bible reader

Being a caregiver can be extremely demanding. For that reason, rest is very important. Jesus invites us to come to Him to find rest.
