Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. – Matthew 11:28 (NIV)
Jesus does not want you to carry the weight of the world yourself. He wants to carry it for you. The Christian life is not about you doing the best you can and then God will do the rest. It’s a complete surrender to Jesus where He is in control. He takes the responsibility of carrying your burdens.
The question is, will you give Jesus full control of your life? It’s easy to say yes at a youth camp or retreat where emotions are high. But really think about it. Will you let Jesus be in charge? Whether you’ve been a Christ follower already for years or have only thought about it, Jesus wants to be your all in all.
So today, put up a white flag and confess Him as Lord of your life. Let Him have control of your life. He will take better care of you than you could ever take care of yourself.
