Week 4 • Day 2 • Ponder

“Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
Matthew 11:29 (NIV)

Jesus told us his yoke is light. If you feel a heavy burden weighing you down, it’s an immediate
sign the world is getting to you—it’s not from God.

I expect gentleness from God. I expect to go to Him and find peace and ease.

I know that if I’m living in pain and chaos and stress, that I’m trying to do too much on my own
strength. I know this, because the Bible tells me so.

Are you doing too much in your own strength?

It’s an important question, one that could dramatically change your life if you learn to take on
God’s yoke instead of the world’s expectations.
