Lay Your Burdens Down





Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
— Hebrews 7:25, NASB



Jesus has said, “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden.” This invitation is certainly for those who are burdened with unbelief; and his assurance is, “Ye shall find rest unto your souls.” It is not, “Maybe you shall find rest.” Oh, no; it is positive and certain: “Ye shall find rest.” 
He says “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls.” Take his yoke upon you, and he will bear the heaviest part himself. 
He says, “I am at thy right hand to help you,” “my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” 
We are to fix our faith on the promises of God, which are sure and steadfast, and shall endure forever and ever. The joyful feeling will come when we fully trust in God’s promises. 
Why not say, “God has promised the power, and I will win back the moral image of my Creator and Redeemer”? Do not allow the mind to hold communion with the enemy. Do not talk of his power to discourage you. Talk of Christ, who is able to save to the uttermost all who come unto God by him. 
Find rest and peace in our Saviour. Come with your burdens, and lay them down at the foot of the cross. 
By living faith, I grasp the hand of Jesus, and I am all light in the Lord. I do not look at self, I look to Jesus, my high priest, who presents my case to the Father, offering up the merits of his life and sacrifice. Faith will keep the mind above the low level of earth, and direct the soul to Heaven in contemplation of the spiritual and eternal.
Let us lift up Jesus, the Saviour of men. Talk of his love, tell of his power, and the angels of God will be attracted to you. 
— Signs of the Times, March 18, 1889 



Fix your faith on the promises of God which are sure and steadfast. Fully trust in His promises. 
Say, “God has promised the power and I will win back the moral image of my Creator and Redeemer.”
Come to Christ with your burdens and lay them down at the foot of the cross.
By living faith grasp the hand of Jesus. Do not look to yourself, look to Jesus as your high priest.
