TITLE: GET SOME REST WHEN NECESSARY
AUTHORED BY PASTOR CHARLES AND FAVOUR CHUKWUEMEZIE
MARK 6:31 “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.”
Sometimes we get so busy that we either forget or ignore rest. Some people think it’s awkward to rest when there’s a lot to do, but in reality not resting is not a guarantee that you’ll be able to meet up to all the task and appointments.
What is wrong is resting whereas you never worked.
God rested after work. We read of Jesus sleeping in the boat while the storm raged. Jesus also rested by Jacob’s well because He was tired. Now we see Jesus telling His disciples to get away from everyone and every duty and get some rest.
There must be something good about rest.
Why won’t some people find time to rest? Thinking about it, I can say that one of the reasons is that they want to impress someone. Impressing others to depress themselves.
It is painful to rise early, sleep late and still eat the bread of painful labour. (Psalms 127:2)
that doesn’t speak of grace. A man enjoying grace finds time to rest, he does not worry or stress out himself because He knows that God cares for him.
PRAYER AND DECLARATION
O GOD, HELP ME DISCERN TIME FOR WORK AND THAT OF REST, IN JESUS NAME… AMEN
WORDS ON MARBLE
IF YOU REFUSE TO REST, YOU MAY MAY BE LAID TO REST BEFORE TIME… CHARLES CHUKWUEMEZIE
