I read all the time about how women are just so wrapped up with their lives. I t does appear to be a daunting task to get everything done. I have been at it today myself, the trash, laundry and now dishes are piling, so I know.
I linked up with several blogs and lots of other things that just have to be done and here I I’m writing about rest, and what is so great about it. I’m not even tired because i know how to rest now.
Hebrews 4 rest eluded me for years. every minute of the day was accounted for , even if was going to rest, I allowed the guilt and shame to enter in, and would end up doing and doing for others, I couldn’t sleep, now I can even nap. I had to give it to Him, I can’t do anything without Him. I really can’t.
Don’t let critical and condemning spirit from others get you to not being a good enough Christian. God can do more when you rest in Him. You will go crazy trying to be God. We’re just not that omnipotent, no matter our gifts. And angels are to minister to us.
I believe angels are a part of rest because they are always with the Holy Spirit. Often, I hear that little, ” You’ve done enough. ” or simply, ” Rest. ” I know now when to call it quits, even if I would love to write all night.
May restful angels follow you and help you to rest. And here are a few verses. I’m for easy and light. So let’s listen, and rest.
to the children of Israel…..”This is the place of rest, let the weary rest; this is the place of repose.” But they would not listen.
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from Him. Psalm 62:5 NIV
And if the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it, but if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. Matthew 10:13
Although this is for the disciples as they visit, we are His house, the temple His Spirit resides in, get rid of the den of thieves and robbers, worry, fear and anxiety and be a house of peace. Pray in the Spirit, or ask Him to pray for you.
Therefore, since the promise of entering His rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it. Hebrews 4:1
Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” Mark 6:31, even Jesus rested.
Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently on Him. Psalm 37:7
