Rest Child

Rest child. I’ll do the work. There is no need for you to run here and run there, to be everywhere. Only go where I send you and do what I do. You have tried to do it all and have become tired. Do not resist the sabbath rest I have for you. You will be seen and be on the scene, not because of self effort, but because of my Spirit.  Those who would outwardly judge the inward work of my Spirit in you do not understand the power of rest. Soulish activity has never produced long term fruit.

I have given you a seat to sit in. Don’t give it away to run here and there. The race I have given you is a marathon not a sprint. Use your time wisely and go where i send you. My grace is sufficient for you. My power is made perfect in your weakness.  The world is rushing here and rushing there, living life in the fast lane. You must slow down in order to hear the still, small voice of my Spirit speaking to you.  You can live out of your own devices or quiet your heart to hear the wisdom of my voice within you.

Stop and Rest

The world is a noisy place; quietness is hard to find. Seek after it; find a place where you can sit for a while and receive peace for your soul. Without these times of quietness and rest in my Presence, you will return to dependence on your own knowledge. Don’t forget what my word says in Proverbs 3 “Trust in Jehovah with all thy heart, And lean not upon thine own understanding: In all thy ways acknowledge him, And he will direct thy paths.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:5-6‬ ‭ASV‬‬
