I think the world is much too busy. Work, work, work, then…play, play, play. Work hard and play harder still. The time we need to spend refreshing ourselves in God’s presence is neglected to either fill our pockets or to feed our selfish appetites. We do what we like to do instead of what we need to do.
After a day’s work you must take time to rest,
For your body to function at its best.
To yield to the Spirit is to rest in His care,
Relinquishing your own will in requests of prayer.
The work of Holy Spirit is busy deep inside.
His mission is to guide, shape and revive.
When the Word of God is taken inside to keep safe,
It can be drawn up to help at a later date.
It is never outdated, never out of touch;
Its work in you, you can surely trust.
When God says it…believe it and you will clearly see
When you rest in His promise; the promise works in thee.
Rest in assurance you are taken care of.
Rest in expectation God always proves His love.
Find comfort in the living Word each day,
And you will find solutions to the problem prayed.
Stand on the answer you have been shown
Honor His love, and give thanks He never leaves you alone.
As you rest in praise and worship you may find,
The work is already done… so you can enjoy even more resting time.
I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand,
I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth:
my flesh also shall rest in hope.
