Some of you have been carrying an atlas stone on your shoulder for years now, you have been walking with it for so long now, breaking down your shoulders, they are in pain, you wake up in the middle of the night in deep tears, waking up depressed.
The sad thing is while you have been carrying these heavy stones, you asked people around you for help, just to ease the pain a little bit. But no one accepted, because it was too heavy and they didn’t want to participate in your pain.
Funny thing is while you were seeking help from the people around you, there was someone right beside you, all along even before you had that weight fall upon you.
He has been begging you to give it to HIM to carry, HE proposed HIS help but you refused, HE sent people to tell you, that HE loves you so much HE is willing to take the atlas stone from you and carrying it for free and eternally, yet you rejected their message and HIS help.
But my question is, what good has it brought you? Right now you are still in pain, crying every night, it’s having a great impact on your heart, emotions, mind and through your actions.
But it’s not too late, can I just encourage you right now? Can I just give you a free ticket, a freeway out, can I give you a place to put that weight down and leave it there forever? Can I just help you, my fellow friends, can I ?
Can I send you to my Best Friend, my psychologist HE’S a specialist that can actually help you because HE truly cares and takes HIS job very seriously? Brother, sister, my dear friends, and family let me present to you my psychologist
His name is JESUS CHRIST, you can go to HIM any time and anywhere around the world but most of all you don’t even need to leave your home nor do you have to pay for the consultation, you can speak to HIM freely wherever you want, YES! WHEREVER, even in your room.
6: But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
It’s not just the physical bedroom in your home but the spiritual room in your heart. A place where no one can enter or disturb, it’s just you and HIM.
I once was carrying my own atlas stone, wandering around, seeking help from others that clearly didn’t want to partake in my pain, and hey who can blame them? but one day out of nowhere, HE came to me and said:
28: Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
“Let me just give him a shot, I have nothing to lose anyway,” I said
The moment I tried trusting HIM and allowing HIM to take down the atlas stone off my shoulders, boy did I feel free and great things began to happen in my life, right now I have Baby night rests, laughing mornings and joyful days. Every day isn’t perfect but as long as HE’S by my side, everything seems great.
And indeed, I had nothing to lose, but everything I gained !!!
Trust me the moment you humble yourself before him, admit you are in pain, put away your pride and lay down that atlas stone at HIS feet, that’s the moment you will gain real happiness and freedom, filled with joy a joy you have never felt and can never feel even if you were a millionaire married to the most handsome man/ beautiful woman on this entire earth ..
13: May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
