“Come to me all of you who are tired from the heavy burden you have been forced to carry. I will give you rest. Accept my teaching. Learn from me. I am gentle and humble in spirit. And you will be able to get some rest. Yes, the teaching that I ask you to accept is easy. The load I give you to carry is light.”Matthew 11:28-30 ERV
Sometimes we see God as another task instead of the perfect friend. We see obeying God as a nuisance, instead of a safe place. When we see God in the wrong way, we will do anything but be close to him. God wants to show you how he is able to lighten your load, give you confidence and mercy. We have to do our side, allowing him to teach us.
