Matthew 11:28-30 (ESV)
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.
Everything we do is built on the canvas of TRUST
Genesis 3:1-6 (ESV)
Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?” And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’” But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.
Ecclesiastes 5:10 (NIV)
Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income. This too is meaningless.
Proverbs 20:17 (ESV)
Bread gained by deceit is sweet to a man, but afterward his mouth will be full of gravel.
There is ONE THING that will bring rest to your soul
Matthew 6:33 (ESV)
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
What fights to be the center?
Freedom comes when I allow GOD to DEFINE who I am
When we TRUST, we REST
