We can pick up heavy burdens along the way of life such as: shame, worry, guilt, pressure, fear, anxiety, and pain. If we don’t lighten the suitcase we will be dragged down on this journey of life.
We were made to flourish. God made us in His image and fashioned and shaped us for His plans. He plucked us from eternity and placed us on the planet for a purpose.
When we lost our connection to God, we lost our way. God sent Love Incarnate to earth to exchange our weights and burdens for His light and easy yoke. Jesus lived a perfect life for us, died as us and was raised from the dead to victory for our justification.
Now as we receive Jesus in our heart, we enter into this great exchange. We can boldly come to the throne room of grace and exchange our fallen state, mistakes, sorrow, sadness, pain, and sickness for Jesus’ righteousness, success, peace, wholeness, joy, and healing.
As we daily spend time cultivating our relationship with the Lord in prayer, we will grow in our understanding of His great love for us. The more we know we are loved unconditionally, the lighter and freer we will become. We will be able to be people of love, because loved people love.
