lookingSpiritual Coaching Vol 3 #34 Exhausting…

It may have been that Easter came so early this year or that between Easter week and the week after there were three funerals that I presided over but I am to a point… well the rain on the roof this morning sounds like sleep. I had a Pentecostal friend that reminded me that some of the great people of the bible always made great decisions or moves of leadership from a point of rest. We don’t get enough of that in our hectic lives it would seem. Our time gets pretty filled up.

John McArthur, a evangelical writer, said, “Rest means freedom from whatever worries or disturbs you. Some people cannot rest mentally and emotionally because they are so easily annoyed. Every little nuisance upsets them and they always feel hassled. Rest does not mean freedom from all nuisances and hassles; it means freedom from being so easily bothered by them It means freedom in the face of whatever would disturb your rest!. Rest means to be inwardly quiet, composed, peaceful. To enter God’s rest means to be at peace with God (Romans 5:1), to possess the perfect peace He gives (Is 26:3). It means to be free from guilt and even unnecessary feelings of guilt. It means freedom from worry about sin, because sin is forgiven. God’s rest is the end of legalistic works and the experience of peace in the total forgiveness of God.”

Perhaps the greatest gift is to find rest within our day. Rest and peace with God can actually make us more productive overall. So even though it is Monday and for most of us it’s back to work; be sure to take moments to remind yourself that you can rest in God wherever you are and whatever time of day it is.

Be Well…
