What are the things hidden?
From whom are these things hidden?Why are they revealed to little children?
At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure.
“All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:25-30
When you get this, your yoke will be easy and your burden will be light. What do you need to get? How can you have a light burden and an easy way? This is not going to be easy to hear. This is why it is hidden from the wise and learned.
We are trained that if you perform, then life will be easy. Have more money and success and life will be better. Work hard and you will succeed. If this is how you think, you need to be re-trained and re-taught. Who is the great teacher? The great teacher is Jesus Christ and HE wants to be yoked to you. HIS yoke is gentle and humble. A yoke of pride can be easily yoked with another yoke of pride. However, a yoke of gentleness and humility can only be yoked with another yoke of gentleness and humility. Jesus said his yoke is gentle and humble. His yoke will not fit with a prideful spirit in you.
If you want your burden light, you must humble yourself. Ask the question: are you being prideful? Are you seeking your way or God’s way? Rest comes for your soul in gentleness and humility. These secrets of the Kingdom of God are only available to those who are like children. Children receive instruction from their teacher easier than from adults.
Can you receive like a child? Do you want your soul to rest? Do you really want your burden easy and light?
Do you believe the Word of God? If you do, then go put it into practice today. Humble yourself before the Lord and you will find rest for your soul today.
