14 The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
Finding rest can be hard. I know I have just spent the last month and a half essentially working every day. This is the first consecutive day off that I have had in a long time.
Resting is unusual to me. It is out of my nature. I am one that loves to charge full speed at the things I do. I don’t like to slow down.
For many years I ran from my reality. Overworking was a nice way to numb the pain I had at home. But it was through this overworking and burnout that I would feel the Lord minister to me.
He really does replenish us. He renews our strength. I know a lot of the time, it’s scary to slow down and listen to our thoughts. It’s scary to feel like because we aren’t doing something, we are wasting time. But know that is necessary for us. We need to give the Lord time to work in our spirits.
Father God, I ask that you work with us this weekend. God gives us the time to slow down and rest. Download what you have been trying to show us. Move-in our spirit. Move-in our lives. We ask that you speak to us in new ways. We ask that you open our eyes to new things. Help us find the time to rest. We thank you for this blessed week! It is with absolutely everything that we pray, AMEN!
