First Sabbath

 “Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”  (Matthew 11:28)

Today is the first of six Sabbath days during the Lenten season.  These are sometimes known as feast days.  They are the Sundays within the 40-day observance.  They are not counted in the 40.  These are days to “rest” in the presence of our Lord.

Therefore, today consider the invitation of Jesus, the Good Shepherd, as you read Psalm 23.  How has your week been?

Are you feeling stressed?  Come to Jesus.

Are you feeling overwhelmed?  Come to Jesus.

Are you feeling afraid?  Come to Jesus.

Are you tired?  Come to Jesus.

In the presence of Jesus there is a rest that goes beyond words…beyond your circumstances…beyond your failures.  Will you come today and rest in Him?  Read the Psalm again.  Let it wash over you as you read it.

“The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not be in want”

Spend some extra time in His presence today.  Allow His peace to fill your heart.
