Resting In The Lord

Exodus 33.png

The Lord replied, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”         Exodus 33:14

 

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give your rest.”   Matthew 11:28

 

My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest. Sometimes when you are quiet weary, all you can think about is finding rest. As a result, your awareness of Christ presence grows dim. He assure you, though, that even when you attention falters, his remains steadfast. Rejoice that the Lord is always taking care of you has an infinite attention span!

If you think about it, even the most devoted parents cannot be constantly attentive to their children. They have to sleep some of the time. Also, they can be distracted by other demands on their attention. Many deeply loved children have drowned when their devoted parents took their eyes off them ever so briefly. Only the Lord has the capability of watching over his beloved children continually, without the least interruption.

Instead of worrying where and when you will find rest, remember that Jesus has promised to provide if for you. Worrying wastes vast quantities of energy the very thing you need most to help you reach a resting place. If you were driving a car with little gas in the tank and the nearest service station was far away, you would drive carefully and steadily so as to minimize gas consumption. Similarly, when you are low on energy you need to minimize consumption of this precious commodity. Go gently and steadily through your day, looking to Jesus for help. Rest in the knowledge that his watch over you is perfect. Thus, you make the most of your limited energy. Whenever you are struggling with weariness, come to Jesus and he will give you rest.

 

Grace and Peace to You My Friends
