Daily Read - Genesis 32:13-34:31; Matthew 11:7-30; Psalm 14:1-7; Proverbs 3:19-20
Matthew 11:28-30 
   Come to Me, all you 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."
Life presents you with a bountiful buffet of opportunities. Some come straight from your Abba Father to bless you, while others originate from the world system authored by Satan's strategists.
Of course, those things offered from darkness only bring My people into places of stress, worry, anxiety, and bondage. The enemy's whole plan revolves around ways to enslave you to carry heavy weights and burdens not intended for you to carry.
Many tantalizing delicacies line Satan's buffet table. Everything looks so good and screams out to you begging for you to partake. The entire feast is nothing more than a deceptive mirage that tries luring you to bite into a great big, heavy burden.
If you show any interest, their shouts elevate to almost unbearable decibels blocking out your ability to hear My voice. They scream, "Work more hours; take more classes; get your children in more sports; buy more things!" They continue to offer many ideas and choices to entice you and without even knowing it, you've indulged in everything presented.
In no time, you find yourself worn out and stuffed full with exhaustion. Even in the midst of total burn out, your mind still tries justifying everything as being from Me because it looked so good.
Be cautious and alert, wielding discernment as a sword during this new season. The enemy wants to wear you down using busyness and stress to accomplish his task. A tired and burned out believer is ineffectual for Kingdom advancement!
Come to Me, in fact, run to Me and give Me all of your weariness and I will give you rest for your tired and worn out soul. Surrender the heavy burdens that weigh you down, they do not belong to you. Repent for taking on things and opportunities that were not from My feasting table, but came from Satan.
Take the time to come away and learn from Me and from My ways. Take of the good things that I offer you from My banqueting table. Taste and see that I am good. I require nothing from but a surrendered heart. 
For My yoke is easy and My burden is light
Now, take in a deep breath of My rest!
Dear Precious Jesus,
I surrender all
I surrender all
All to thee My blessed Savior
I surrender all!
