Matt 11v28 – His path

To save time, on our mountain hike, we decided to head straight up the tree line instead of taking the contour path. The hike was tough and steep and filled with boulders and branches to clamber over. With no energy for conversation or time to look at the view, we pushed on. Two-thirds of the way up, we decided to join the contour path. The difference was remarkable. The path was smooth and gradual, and all obstacles were gone. Soon we were enjoying wonderful conversation and soaking in the incredible views. How similar is this experience to our relationship with Jesus? We all have to follow a path in life. Often because we are stubborn, proud, or short of time, we choose the difficult path. The one filled with obstacles. The one where we end up exhausted with no time for each other and no time to be thankful for all our blessings. Jesus offers us his path. The smooth path where he directs our way removes the obstacles, carries our burdens, fills us with his power and gives us rest. “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest…For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28,30). Today, choose the path Jesus offers so he can open your eyes to God’s presence all around you and give you his rest. Open Bible –
