Can I ask, have you been resting with the Lord?
In my time of prayer, the Lord reminded me, as I learned last week, that He is the Lord of the Sabbath (Mark 2:28) and that He has gifted us with times and seasons of rest.
It all dawned on me this morning when I stood up from prayer; I could see God’s will confronting my own. On a Saturday morning, what was I heading to do after prayer? I was going to dive straight into my work email (what a trap)! Right then and there, the Lord reminded me of who He is- the Lord of the Sabbath. I am expected to rest in Him and with Him.
As I reflect upon my week, I have noticed that I have developed a new habit of starting work early and ending work later at night- even to the point of using my down time to mentally prepare my to-do list for the next day!
The Lord began to show me my terrible habit of filling my days with work, school, sometimes choosing to take on too many bible studies at one time. I have this habit of always filling myself up to the max! And the Lord is reminding me to be strategic with my days, so that I can be fruitful in my work, in my vocation and in my spiritual life.
I pray that you too are resting with our Lord and allowing Him to order your days. I pray that you experience an even greater sense of peace and contentment today and even into your most busiest seasons of life.
