It was the tick of the heart monitoring machine that woke Chief Kayode, he was surprised to find himself in a hospital with wires all over him and members of his family staring anxiously at him.
The last thing he remembered before now was that the bank called him to say they were going to confiscate his house because he had defaulted on the loan he collected. What would he do? Where would he run? Who could help him? As he thought about these things, the heart monitoring machine began to tick very fast.
Chief's wife immediately sent for the doctor. "Chief you will have to relax and remove your mind from anything that will upset you at this season, you have high blood pressure and if you are not careful, it will develop into a stroke". The doctor said to him.
Many people are like Chief Kayode, they are carrying their burdens alone. The bible says in Matthew 11:28 (GWT) "Come to me, all who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. The Oxford dictionary describes 'rest' as a time when you cease work or movement in order to relax, another calls it a period of inactivity.
Listen to me, when you reach the end of yourself is when God has just started. If you are a child of God, He will not let you succeed alone. He has said in Isaiah 41:17 (NIV) "The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. But I the LORD will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.
Relax! Help is on the way but you must come to Jesus. Have you made Him your Lord and Saviour? What are you waiting for? Come to Jesus today.
