    The verse that always reaches out and grabs me is Verde 6 I removed the burden from his shoulder and delivered his hands from the pots. I'm always trying to hard and working so much and never feel like I make enough to rest and the debt I have and owe is such a heavy burden. I'm always praying for God to supernaturally just deliver me from it and and free my hands so that I can just rest.

    Vs. 13 14 are my best: I'm Loving it, because we give up too quickly and do not WAIT for God to act on our behalf. God's deliverance on our behalf comes with our listening and obeying Him. This way we do not have to fight for ourselves. I need to remember this daily.
  • Sharon
