He’s Got Time For You
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.
Matthew 11:28 – 30
Sometimes we are tempted to think that Jesus doesn’t have time for us. That he is too busy to hear about what we are going through. That there are more important people or more pressing needs that he is attending to. That what we face is too small to warrant his attention or that what we face is our fault so we had better take care of it ourselves.
The fact that Jesus is God says that this kind of thinking is nonsense. He isn’t limited in any way, shape or form. The fact that he gives careful attention to one person doesn’t mean that he isn’t able care for you at the exact same moment. There isn’t a shortage of his time. He is God, limitlessly available to you.
This is why Jesus invites all who labor and are heavy laden to come to him. If Jesus weren’t God, this invitation would be impossible to fulfill. But because Jesus is God, all of us can come, all of us can cast our anxieties upon him and all of us can find rest, care and comfort from Jesus.
This means today really can be a day of great joy because in all the stress, busyness, loneliness and fear that can creep into a day, Jesus has all the time in the world for you. So cast all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
