“Take the yoke I give you. Put it on your shoulders and learn from me. I am gentle and humble, and will give you rest. This yoke is easy to bear, and this burden is light (Matthew 11:29-30 CEV).”
If I stoop under a heavy load, I am not in his assigned yoke. He desires to hold the guiding reins.
“I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons (Psalm 16:7 KJV/ The Pilgrim Study Bible-Commentary: “MY REINS. My innermost being; my heart and affections.”)
Where do my affections lead?
“Lead me to your throne of mercy, O LORD.”
Take over my reins.
“For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13 KJV).”
From the womb-to-tomb, His hands hold the reins.
“I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works (Revelation 2:23b KJV).”
Forever and always, our God reigns!
“Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth (Revelation 19:6b KJV).”
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
