In the journey of life we have seen people who are so active or hyperactive. To them life is just about doing this and that. To these people it seems as though if there is energy it needs to be spent. Someone once referred to such people as a bunch of energy waiting to happen. As much as I believe in hard work, I also believe in finding that balance where after we have worked hard we come to the place of stillness and entering the rest of the Lord.
The place of stillness is where we allow God to refresh us and renew our energy before we continue the journey. It is that place of waiting upon the Lord and allowing Him to infuse you with divine energy and ability to accomplish what He has ahead for you.
The things of God have to be done God’s way and as we are empowered by His Spirit. This can only happen when we often get away from the busy schedules of life to be still and rest in the Lord as He empowers us. This was our Lord’s secret and we will do well to emulate Him. Be still and know that He is God. Enter His rest and allow Him to refresh you.
SCRIPTURE READING: Psalms 37:7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I choose to be still before You and acknowledge You as Lord over my life. Let me find my rest in You and receive Your refreshing touch in Jesus Name, Amen.
