The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. (Psalms 9:9 NIV)
Oppression can come from many different sources. You may have a boss that is overbearing, financial problems, anxiety, depression, and so much more. There is a place we can go when we are feeling oppressed and overwhelmed with life. We can go to Jesus. He has big shoulders that can take on our worries and problems. He says to bring it on. He is there to give us support. Whatever our problems, He can give us peace and a place to rest.
“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 11:28-30 NIV)
