Matthew 11:28-30 (MSG)

Are you loaded down with heavy burdens that tip the scale to –MUCH too MUCH? 

Do you feel as if you are carrying the weight of the world? One final question—Do you know Jesus as LORD and Savior? 

In the book of Matthew chapter 11, Jesus makes a call to all those overburdened. He calls to those working hard to meet a goal that’s unattainable by the works of one’s hands.

Grace for a Lifetime – S4 DEp8 

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

Hebrews 4:14-16 (NLT) says: 

So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.

Devotional 

As believers in Jesus, we face daily challenges and testing that come like clockwork. We want life to be a cakewalk, but instead, it’s filled with temptations that reveal our weak areas.  

But our weaknesses don’t define who we are in Christ, because Jesus has given us a new identity in Him. Jesus made us righteous when we chose to have faith in Him for our righteousness.

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

Ephesians 2:8-9 (AMP) says: 

For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God; not as a result of [your] works [nor your attempts to keep the Law], so that no one will [be able to] boast or take credit in any way [for his salvation]. 

Ephesians 2:8-9 (AMP)

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

Matthew 6:33-34 (NLT) says: 

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and HE will give you everything you need. “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” 

Matthew 6:33-34 (NLT) 

Devotional 

Have you ever gotten so caught up in what you wanted that you forgot what you needed? Our minds can get so crowded with wants and worries that we tend to focus on what is meaningless compared to God. 

As a result, we stress out. We focus on career goals, marriage goals, life goals, and yet forget to consult the Creator of all things.

Psalm 34:17-19 (NLT) says: 

The LORD hears his people when they call to him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. The righteous person faces many troubles, but the LORD comes to the rescue each time.

Devotional  

I’m a mother. And ever since my daughter was a baby, I had my ears tuned to hear her cry. And, although she is an adult now, I’m still concerned about her well-being.  

So much so, I’ll come running when she needs me! I want to know when something troubles her! I want to rescue her from any hurts or disappointments. I love her that much! 

No doubt, love makes you want to rescue the ones you love!

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

Psalm 30:4-5 (GNT) says: 

Sing praise to the LORD, all his faithful people! Remember what the Holy One has done, and give him thanks! 

His anger lasts only a moment, his goodness for a lifetime. Tears may flow in the night, but joy comes in the morning.  

Psalm 30:4-5 (GNT) 

Devotional 

When we read about David, we find that although he suffered through many trials, God favored him a whole lot. David had so many victories in his life. In fact, you would have thought he was a star athlete always at the top of his game.  

But, like us, David had some issues and wasn’t without fault. So much so, David suffered a great deal because of it. His list of sins was long. He had many moments of a lapse in judgment.  

Yet, God was merciful to him. And yes, God’s grace and favor was right there to save him.

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

Romans 8:32 (TPT) says: 

For God has proved his love by giving us his greatest treasure, the gift of his Son. And since God freely offered him up as the sacrifice for us all, he certainly won’t withhold from us anything else he has to give. 

Romans 8:32 (TPT) 

Devotional 

A father’s love is such a treasured gift to any child. And the Heavenly Father, gave us HIS greatest treasure in the gift of His Son.  

God’s love poured out upon humanity through the greatest sacrifice ever known on the Cross. When Jesus died on the Cross for the sins of the world, God’s love was proven.  

God loves us more than we can fathom and we should never doubt that. Instead, let’s acknowledge that the sacrifice of HIS Son wasn’t an easy one—but it was necessary to save humanity.

Often times, life doesn’t quite look like we are the head and not the tail, above only and not beneath—but it’s true. God’s Word declares that we are set apart. We are seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus our LORD. WE are HIS heirs because we are joint heirs with Christ.

Devotional 

Are you a planner? I am. In my human nature, I want to plan what’s next. It’s a defense mechanism for me so that I can feel a sense of control over my life. But I have learned that my plans aren’t what God has planned for me. 

You see, since the beginning of time—God had a plan for each one of us. And HIS plan involved HIM in everything that concerns us. HE wants to be an infinite part of our lives. Because HE knows what’s best for us.
