God has been teaching me about rest. I’m not talking about rest from physical labor but rest in my spirit. No striving. No worries. Letting go in every way possible so that He can grasp on to my hands. Taking my thoughts captive in every way. I want to rest so that his provision will flow.
I rest in his promises because I know he is always faithful.
The other day hubby said to me, “Let’s rest.” He was talking about physical rest. And I said, “No, I don’t want to!!” He said to me, “We needed to learn to rest from our labor and enjoy all of what God has given to us. If we’re constantly striving it’s a recipe for anxiety.
Today, as I was about to head out to the women’s bible study to see all my friends and striving to do good works, I felt a nudge to go home and clean rather than go out. I went home to clean the house, listen to music/sermons, and decorate the home. Physically, I wasn’t resting yet, but my soul was at rest. Now that I am done with most chores, I can now physically rest from my labor and enjoy.
My love tank is filled. My spiritual love tank is overflowing! Praise God! I pray that you would do the same. Rest in His love and promises for you today no matter the circumstances.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for this rest you have given to each and everyone of us. All we need to do is grab hold of it and apply it. Your word tells us to cease striving and to recognize who you are; you are the Lord of all. I thank you that in the midst of our circumstances we can still be at rest, be at peace because we put our trust in you. Amen.
