Are you experiencing a weariness and perhaps even discouragement in your ministry? As I read the Word in John 6, I am reminded of the fact that we do press on because we have a Savior who is “the Bread of Life.” As we are filled up with His Word, our minds are renewed, and this gives us new resolve and new energy. I find that when I am focused on Him instead of myself, I have a completely different motivation to serve my wonderful Lord. Simply put, I want to please Him and be used by Him for His purposes and His glory. I am grateful to have a God who supplies what I need most of all: food for my soul. He fills my deepest need!
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 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. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matt.11:28-30)
