First of all, if you are weary what is making you weary? Do you feel overworked, fearful, have the wrong focus or feel there is no hope for you? These will certainly make you feel weary.
If you are overworked, do you have your priorities in the right order or are you just trying to do too much? God never planned to make you too busy.
If you are fearful, are you watching too much negative news or allowing the devil to come in and speak lies to you, or at least exaggerate the negative things you think about?
Then there is covid which has thrown so many into a loop where their focus and bearings in life have changed. And with covid still with us, so many are frustrated or have lost hope.
Regardless of where you are in this, there is hope and there is peace for you.
Jesus said in Matthew 11:28–30 (NIV) — 28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 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. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Jesus is a great teacher and as we come and learn from him, he shows us how to remove weight (of life) we have been carrying around on our shoulders. Once the weight of our burdens comes off we start to have hope for it says in Psalm 62:5 Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.
Feeling anxious? We are called to pray. It says in Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Prayer renews us, sets our path straight and gives peace in our mind and our heart. And in the midst of prayer, hope arises for it says in Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Prayer changes how you see your life and how you see your external circumstances. It gives peace in the middle of the storms. The bible also says that prayer is both powerful and effective.
