Did you know that your Heavenly Father can’t wait to meet with you today? It’s true! Spend a minute or two dwelling on that and then read the passage below using your Bible Study Insert.
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. — Psalm 139:23
What’s brought you to this point in your life where you are feeling so “under pressure”? Some of us are burdened and weary are because you can’t say no or you don’t want to hurt feelings by turning people down. You may be where you are because you’re a people pleaser or a control freak. For others, we’re burdened and tired because of our pride, overspending or anger. For some of us the source of the exhaustion is a drug or alcohol problem, or worry. So WHY? Really think about that right now. “WHY am I so burdened and tired? Where is all this coming from?”
As you prepare to pray, what do you sense your Heavenly Father speaking to you right now? How is He calling you to respond?
