“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)

When you feel the weight of the world coming down on you, turn to the Word of God to ease the

burden (Matthew 11:28.)

If your struggles are beginning to feel unbearable, read these scriptures. I believe that they will help


1. Expect trouble. 1 Peter 4:12 (NIV) says, “Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that

has come on you to test you , as though something strange were happening to you.”  On this earth

we will face difficulties and disgrace. Due to our faith, it is inevitable. But take heart! Jesus has

overcome the world (John 16:33), and we have overcome it through him (1 John 5:4.)

2. Be joyful in it. It may sound odd, but even when times are trying and we can see no signs of God

working in our favor, we must have the mindset of Habbakuk in Habbakuk 3:18 (NLT), “yet I will rejoice

in the Lord! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!”

3. Praise through it! 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NIV) says, “give thanks in all circumstances; for this is

God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” Emphasis in in ALL circumstances. Praise him for what He’s done,

what He will do, and who He is. No matter how life is treating us, God is always worthy of praise.
