I’ve been going at a slower pace lately.
But something I’ve learned in these new steps in life, if you’re not resting as you slow down, you’re not accomplishing the goal of replenishment.
Thinking that when you’re in transition that you are afforded you down time and don’t replace busyness with resting in God’s presence, you create further exhaustion.
I am tired.
…for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his.
Hebrews 4:10 NIV
I haven’t been entering into the rest that God calls me to. I haven’t been listening to His words and allowing His statutes to dictate my walk as of late. The rest I’ve been called to has escaped me and I haven’t allowed for my pace to create a true place of Sabbath, a place of rest.
Jesus spoke truth to this time in my life, and instead, I have disobeyed. I am depleted. I have learned.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
Matthew 11:28 NIV
When you’re in a place of Sabbath, heed God’s command. Rest in His goodness, His love, and His truth. And when you do so, His rest will remain.
The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
Exodus 33:14 NIV
