Light for My Path Daily Devotion
[Jesus said] “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30 ESV)
Hymn ELH 373:1,4 I Know That My Redeemer
I know that my Redeemer
Lives crowned upon the throne;
Lord over earth and heaven,
He saves, and He alone;
He conquered death by dying
Upon the accursed tree,
And from His death sprang glorious
Eternal life for me.
I think upon my Savior,
I trust His power to keep,
His mighty arm enfolds me
Awaking and in sleep.
Christ is my Rock, my Courage;
Christ is my soul’s true Life;
And Christ—my still heart knows it—
Will bear me through the strife.
Gracious Father, Your Son has invited me to turn my worries and cares over to Him. Give me faith to trust in His promise to give me peace and rest for my soul. In His name I pray. Amen.
