At that time Jesus exclaimed: “I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to little ones. Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.”
“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.”
When we take on the yoke that Christ offer us, we are sharing our burden with Him. He takes a weight off of us, like no one else can do. If you will only come to know Him and trust Him you will want to share your burdens with Him. Trust in Him and save your life.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, when I gave my life to you, you took my burdens and saved me. You gave me freedom and love. With Jesus, I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth!
I will praise your name for ever, my king and my God, Alleluia!
