“Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.”
When tiredness gets the best of us we need to rest. Before we grow weary or begin to faint, we must rest in the Lord. To truly rest in Him is to be silent or still before Him. If all we do is talk to Him how can we truly listen to what He has to say?
“Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.”
“My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.”
Are you resting in Him today? When did you last stand in awe of Him? In His presence is a peace that passeth all understanding. As we rest in Him and wait patiently for Him to work His will within our lives we will find that He is Good.
“The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.”
We see where Jesus told the apostles to rest for a while after they had returned from preaching the Gospel:
“And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught. And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.”
Christ knew that the disciples needed to rest, but He also knew where they could find true rest…in Him. When we choose to rest in Him miracles can happen in us and through us.
