Jesus promised us He would never leave us (Matt. 28:19-20).  That means He is present with you now.  Is your heart prepared to hear from Him?  Take a moment to prepare your heart to hear from Him then read the passage below. 



"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” — Matthew 11:28


If you’re looking for a REAL release from the pressure Jesus says, “Come to me”.  And listen to the promise he gives the tired, burned out, pressure-filled people: “Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest.” (Matt. 11:28 — The Message)


In essence Jesus says, “If you come to me, I’ll show you how to get a REAL pressure release.”  The word he uses for “rest” here in Greek is “anapao”.  It means “re-create”.  Literally Jesus says, “I’ll re-create your soul.”  Talk about a pressure release!  His promise is to change out the stressed out, pressure filled part of us and literally “recreate” us.


As you prepare to pray,  what do you sense your Heavenly Father speaking to you right now?  How is He calling you to respond?
