WHOA . . . OH . . . OH

Good morning, Mighty Woman of God.  I thank God for each of you and esteem you higher than myself.  May the blessings of the Lord overtake and flow through you daily, as you seek after Him.

(Matthew 11:28), Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  For my yoke is easy; and my burden is light.

WHOA . . . OH . . . OH . . . OH.  That is your war cry.  I know that there are times that you just feel like screaming and placing your face in your hands.  I want you to know that, it's okay to cry.  It's okay to scream at the top of your lungs until you feel a shift in the spirit realm.  Crying does not mean that you don't have the faith to believe that the Lord will bring you out or turn your situation around for your good.  It just means you need to cry out.  It's doesn't mean that you don't trust the Lord.  Sometimes you just have to cry, WHOA . . . OH . . .OH . . .OH.  Let that be your war cry.  As long as you get back up again, it's okay to cry.  Your tears are a way of keeping you sane.

I am going to include the interpretation of the above scriptures from the (Matthew Henry Version) of the bible.

(Matt. 11:28), Come . . . rest: Jesus will give rest to those weary souls, that by faith come to him for it; rest from the terror of sin, in a well-grounded peace of conscience; a rest, in God, in His love, Ps. 11:6-7.  (Matt. 29), meek and lowly: Many great teachers are hot and hasty, which is a discouragement to those who are dull and slow; but Christ knows how to bear with such.  His carriage (action and attitude) toward His 12 disciples was a specimen of this.  He was mild and gentle with them; though they were heedless and forgetful, He was not extreme to mark their follies.  This promise is  from Jer. 6:16.  The only sure way to find rest for our souls is to sit at Christ's feet and hear His word.  (Matt. 11:30), yoke . . . burden: Not only easy, but gracious, so the word signifies; it is sweet and pleasant.  There is nothing in it to gall the yielding neck.  It is a yoke lined with love.  The burden of Christ's cross is a light burden.  This is not joyous, but grievous; yet as it is Christ's, it is light.  Paul knew as much of it as any man and he calls it light affliction, 2 Cor. 4:17.  God's presence (Isa. 43:2), Christ's sympathy (Isa. 73:9, Dan. 3:25), and especially the Spirit's aids and comforts (2 Cor. 1:15), make suffering for Christ light and easy.

I pray that through this interpretation that you have gained wisdom, knowledge and understanding about how merciful and meek that Jesus truly is. There will always be times in your life where you just feel weary, just tired of the trial and tribulation that you are bearing.  There is rest in God and His plans for you is that you find comfort in Him.  It is important for you to accept His peace and pray for rest when you are experiencing a heavy load.  Christ does not beat us over the head when we have fallen short of the Word of God.  He is meek and gentle.  He does not anger quickly when we are slow in our Spiritual Journey.  God knows where you are in Him, He is patient.  Jesus is the very essence of love.  The type of love that Christ displays can never be measured by our own understanding or the type of love that we may have towards our children, husband, friends or others we love.  PRAISE GOD!
