I know that this is tomorrow’s reading, but I accidentally read it today – and I needed to share it:

“…and I will give you rest” – that is, “I will sustain you, causing you to stand firm.”  He is not saying, “I will put you to bed, hold your hand, and sing you to sleep.”  But, in essence, He is saying, “I will get you out of bed – out of your listlessness and exhaustion, and out of your condition of being half dead while you are still alive.  I will penetrate you with the spirit of life, and you will be sustained by the perfection of vital activity.”  Yet we become so weak and pitiful and talk about “suffering” the will of the Lord!  Where is the majestic vitality and the power of the Son of God in that?
