Do you need rest?

Home | Blog – New | Do you need rest?

 

Life can sometimes require a sort of “athletic” strength of us. In fact, the Bible compares us to athletes. (see 2 Timothy 2:5) Each day comes with its own mix of opportunities and challenges. Even answering God’s call and walking in the destiny He has for us can sometimes be tiring. In these moments, it’s good to remember that God Himself is the One who wants to give us rest.

If you work without resting in Christ, you’re going to exhaust yourself. Like an athlete, you need time to rest between periods of exertion and effort.

As a child of God, your place of rest is the “secret place.” It’s there you can have one-on-one discussions with Jesus…

Day after day, no matter what season you’re going through, you need Him to go forward. You need His life and peace within you! Be assured that God promises to go with you and give you rest. That’s what He tells us in His Word in Exodus 33:14: And He said, ‘My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.’” 

You’re not walking alone. At any moment, you can regain your strength in the Lord’s presence… by singing His praises and by reading His Word that reminds you just how faithful and good He is to you.

Be blessed today!
