Born to Be Free

Description

We are surrounded by choices in important and not-so-important areas, in urgent and not-so-urgent things. How can we know where to turn and what to choose?

Pray: 

Lord, I can safely trust You with my every burden. You care about me and You are able to carry it all.

Read: 

Matthew 11:20-30

Reflect: 

Who does Jesus identify as receiving the secrets of heaven?

Some years ago we moved to the States and spent a few years living in Virginia. One evening soon after our arrival, I was on my way home from work, driving in the dark and the rain and the heavy traffic. I needed to get some milk, so I decided to head to the nearest grocery store. Jumping out of the car, I dashed toward the refrigerated section--and stood and stared and burst into tears. All I wanted was two pints of ordinary milk. I was faced with the largest selection of every kind of milk in every flavor, every size, every fat percentage you could possibly imagine. It was too much, and making a decision was exhausting and debilitating.

Our lives today are full of enormous choices, of pressures from everything available to us in every area of our lives. We are surrounded by choices in important and not-so-important areas, in urgent things and not-so-urgent things. How can we know where to turn and what to choose?

Choose me, says Jesus (28). Come to me and choose me first, and I will set you free. Then other things will fall more easily into place.

Apply: 

Reread verses 25 through 30. Choose a few verses and commit them to memory.

Pray: 

Lord, I need Your freedom. Give me courage and strength to choose You and follow You always.
