Life gets busy and if you don’t watch your schedule and activities you can get overwhelmed. I’m very thankful God provides an easy solution for when we get tired and overwhelmed. All we have to do is REST. Throughout His Word, God directs us to rest. He even reveals to us that He rested.
“And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.” Genesis 2:2-3
Resting allows you to be strengthened. It allows your mind and body time to recover and recharge. So today I give thanks for rest and the benefit it gives me. Be mindful of your need for rest and what it can do for you.
“But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
And He said to them, “Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” For there were many coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.” Mark 6:31
May we be mindful to walk in His way and find rest for our souls.
“Thus says the Lord: “Stand in the ways and see, And ask for the old paths, where the good way is, And walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ Jeremiah 16:6
Until next time,
