Why does Jesus say to lay all your burdens on him and lift your own load? It’s because God needs you to be moved by the Holy Spirit – to do His work….
…and wouldn’t it be easier to be floating around for God’s purpose and helping His plan if we dumped some of the heavy baggage that we ourselves keep carrying?
See, Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to help us help God – sent the Holy Spirit as another helper when Jesus had to leave earthly life…
So, with that flame over your head and the great wind that comes around you – can you feel the updraft caused by the forces of God’s nature? Can you feel that you are being pulled into God’s plan to serve Him by serving His people? There’s so many people and opportunities! Just keep moving forward…
Jesus gives you the freedom to live free forever – watch for His air traffic controller arms signaling the start of a new flight in Him.. sense the wind shift – lifting and taking you higher…
God’s grace and mercy and love gifts are always there for you – let Jesus take your burden- let the Holy Spirit carry on thru your life’s journey – look for, feel, and sense His updrafts…
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.”
16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), to be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive [and take to its heart] because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He (the Holy Spirit) remains with you continually and will be in you.
35 And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; 38 therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”
