Jesus says in Matthew 11:25-30:
“At that time Jesus declared, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Despite the teaching of some, life repeatedly proves that Jesus didn’t mean that everything would go the way we want. In fact it’s often in the heaviest times of life that this truth is most made known to us. How does this truth shine light into your dark times? How has Jesus demonstrated this in your life?
