Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
When carrying heavy load, bend your knees.
This is a sign I read from a church. It parallels lifting heavy loads physically and lifting heavy loads in our lives. It’s hard to lift up a heavy load when you don’t bend your knees. Normally, when you do not bend your knees when lifting heavy loads, chances are, you will have trouble with your back at the coming time. Also, bending your knees gives you the upward strength towards lifting your heavy load.
It’s exact same thing in our lives. People must bend their knees when having heavy loads. To shape our knees ninety degrees and come to Jesus upon experiencing burdens. Financial burdens, family burdens, health burdens, relationship burden, work related burdens and other burdens which give us heavy steps in life.
“Come to me.” Jesus promotes. However, sometimes when we experience burden in life, we forget to come to Him.
We come to a human friend to express our stress.
We come to our bank account to see if our resources can be extended.
We come to our resume when having difficulty at our workplace.
We come to our support group when something failed or did not happen as planned.
We come to the best doctors to heal our decaying bodies.
We thought every burden can be made light when we have our knees unbended. The more we allow our knees to be unbended, the more we feel the heavy load in our lives. Jesus’ yoke is easy and His burden light (Matthew 11:30).
Carrying heavy load? Bend your knees. Come to Him.
