Rest For Your Soul
Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne:
"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"
I encourage you to take the yoke of Jesus upon you when you worship. As a priest to your Lord yourself (1 Peter 2:9), in the yoke with your High Priest Jesus Christ (Hebrews 3:1), this is a wonderful way to enter worship. In His presence, in worship and devotion, is the perfect place to clearly see and be transformed by the truth that "I am gentle and humble in heart." You are blessed to behold your Savior this way, so close to Him, in His yoke with Him.
With the yoke of Jesus upon you in worship, the Holy Spirit of God fills you with the qualities of your High priest, His gentleness and His humility. With the yoke of Jesus upon you in worship, these qualities more readily minister to you, even as you are "ministering to the Lord" (Acts 13:2). There is such great rest for your soul in this place. You see, when you are in the yoke with Jesus and you behold His gentle and humble heart, this means He is being this way with you and towards His heavenly Father. You become changed into His image the more clearly you see His disposition towards you.
Jesus Christ wants you to take His yoke upon you, specifically so you will see that He is gentle and humble in heart, so you will experience true, continually sustained, rest for your soul. You may truly rest in Jesus. There is peaceful, renewing rest for you when you are in the yoke with your gentle and humble Savior, learning from Him and being transformed by Him as you worship in His presence. Hallelujah!
