He Surrounds Us

If Your Mouth is Out of Order

The Invitation

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, 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.” (Matthew 11:28-30 NIV)

Jesus invites us to come to Him.  The world is filled with unrest, war, violence, and terror.  People don’t have peace and satisfaction.  There is only one way to find peace in this weary world.  Jesus has given us an invitation.  He says, “Come to me”.  He is inviting us to come to him for peace, comfort, happiness, and salvation.

He invites those that labor and are heavy laden.  He invites those who are under a burden of guilt; Those who are seeking deliverance from sin; Those who are wearied in the ways of the world, they are invited to come to Jesus and find relief.  Our greatest burden is the load of sin we carry.  It is so heavy that it will crush us if we have no relief.  All that are burdened by sin are promised rest.

Come to Him today.

Walking in Obedience

Miracles are Answered Prayers

Escape Route

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. (1 Corinthians 10:13 NIV)

We all face temptations.  When you read the Bible, you see many stories of people who faced temptations.  Jesus faced many temptations far beyond what I would ever face.  How did He over come?  This verse is the answer.  God always provides a way out of the snare that Satan puts in our way.  We just need to pray for our eyes to be opened so that we can see the way of escape that God has for us.

This reminds me of an article I read about a father who told his teenage children that if they were ever in a situation that made them uncomfortable to just text the letter X to him.  He would then call them and say there was a problem at home and he would come and get them.

This is what God has promised to do for us.  If we are in a situation that makes us uncomfortable, a temptation that we need strength to resist, He will open a door of escape.  All you have to do is ask for the escape route.
