Rest…

4 Nov

Are you tired? Stressed out? When you lie down to rest does your mind keep thinking about the things you need to do?

This is the world that we live in today. Where deadlines and stress can be overwhelming.  It wears down on our bodies and our minds.  Science has shown that stress and lack of rest can cause health problems.  So what to do then? How do we rest?

The Word of God says:

It is useless for you to work so hard
from early morning until late at night,
anxiously working for food to eat;
for God gives rest to his loved ones. Psalm 127:2

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

Ask God to help you, ask Jesus into your life to teach you, then you will be able to rest. God will give you the rest that you need.  When you ask God to take the burden that you are carrying, he will take your burden and replace it with his Holy Spirit that provides rest that not only restores your body, it restores your soul.

So go ahead and rest.
