"HAVING A BURDEN REMOVER!"

2 TYPES OF BURDENS

SELF-INFLICTED BURDEN

GOD-INFLICTED BURDEN = THE BURDEN OF THE CROSS.

I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you,”

(2 Corinthians 12:7-9 NIV)

HE WILL HELP YOU CARRY THE BURDEN!

Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 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. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.

(Matthew 11:28-30 NASB)

HOW TO FIND RELIEF IN GODLY BURDENS:

1. BRING THE BURDEN BACK TO JESUS.

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.

(Matthew 11:28 NASB)

2. “YOKE-UP” WITH JESUS.

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.

(Matthew 11:29 NASB)

For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.

(Matthew 11:30 NASB)

3. LEARN FROM JESUS & FIND REST IN HIM.

Learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

(Matthew 11:29 NASB)

LESSON LEARNED: THE GLORY CAN BE FOUND ON THE GROUND.
