Do you ever feel
that God feels very distant? What is recorded in the Bible happened thousands of years ago and sometimes can feel so unrelated to how we live now.
But while God is reigning in Heaven, He’s still watching over the whole world, and He is present in our hearts and is alive in our world today by the power of the Holy Spirit.
God wants you to know Him. He loves you, and He wants you to have peace, wholeness, and a sense of purpose and belonging. Jesus was speaking directly to you when He said, “Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” You can read that in Matthew 11:28 in the Bible.
An early church leader known as Saint Augustine prayed these words: “Oh Lord. . . our hearts are restless until they rest in you.” Many of us can say that today too.
Jesus longs for you to come to Him and find rest. Jesus knows that you are tired of the sin in the world and tired of your own guilt, and He offers you rest and freedom from those things.
Follow Jesus, come to Him, and you’ll find true peace today and every day.
“God wants you to know Him. He loves you, and He wants you to have peace, wholeness, and a sense of purpose and belonging.”
