Psalm 6:2New International Version (NIV)
2 Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am faint;
heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony.
In this day and age people are stressed and overwhelmed by the problems of life! Most carry a backbreaking load of worry and trails that threatens to take them down. Yet God offers us relief from our heavy burdens and troubles of this life. (Matthew 11:28-30 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.”) You can have peace in the middle of the trouble by calling upon the grace of God. In Psalm 34:17 it says, “The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. You may be saying well that’s great if you are righteous! But I’m far from righteous. The thing is we all need God and the blood of Jesus to make us righteous and the moment we call out to God and ask Jesus to be in our life, He answers and forgives us and comes into relationship with us. One of the most tragic things is this belief that we who are broken have to jump through many hoops and change everything about us before God will accept us, when in fact the minute we cry out to God He hears and is ready to rescue us from sin. It is so easy to be a child of God. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only beloved Son that who so ever believed on Him should be saved.” You simply have to confess that Jesus is Lord, God’s Son, that He died for you and rose again! With the declaration and invitation Jesus will come into your life and make you righteous and give you the right to become children of God. (John 1:12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—)
Today invite Jesus into your life and receive His peace and take His burden which is light in exchange for your burden which is heavy. Let the God of mercy give you peace and rescue you from all your trouble! Lord I pray for each person who reads this message that you will bless them and give them a peace they have never known. Rescue them from their problems as they cry out to you and invite you into their life’s. Amen
