Matthew 11:28 (AMP) 28 “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavily burdened [by religious rituals that provide no peace], and I will give you rest [refreshing your souls with salvation].
When we go to Jesus, He will give us rest. We can go to Jesus just as we are. We do not have to wait to be perfect to go to God. God takes us the way we are in our imperfect state. God can do amazing things with our lives the way that we are but we have to take that step of faith and go to Him and ask him to fix our imperfect selves.
One reason we do not have the peace we desire is because we do not take the time to stop and go to God with our problems.
John 7:37 (AMP)37 Now on the last and most important day of the feast, Jesus stood and called out [in a loud voice], “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink!
If there is anything we need or that is hurting in our lives the answer is to go to God. Usually we are so busy trying to figure out what to do in our situation and we go to God once we have exhausted all we know to do. That should be the other way around.
God is not going to reject us – he loves us and accepts us the way we are. Sins and all. We are never going to get things right in life so we might as well just accept that fact, go to God in prayer, ask God to help us change, and not have the expectation that we will be perfect.
God will never reject us. Ever.
John 6:37Amplified Bible (AMP) 37 All that My Father gives Me will come to Me; and the one who comes to Me I will most certainly not cast out [I will never, never reject anyone who follows Me].
If you would like to accept Jesus as your savior, and you are not quite sure how, it is as simple as saying a prayer to God letting Him know you are ready to accept Him into your life. Say this prayer if you would like to invite Jesus to live in your heart:
Father God, I love you and believe in you. I need you Lord and I am sorry for my sins and the way that I live. Lord, I want you in my life. I receive Jesus as my savior and Lord. I believe that Jesus died for me and rose from the dead. Lord take me as I am and make me the way you want me to be. God, thank you for saving me and being with me on my journey. I am looking forward to my journey with you Lord. I know you will equip me for my journey and I am glad I have you by my side as I walk this walk of Life. Thank you Lord, I love you. Amen
