“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest.”
Are you feeling like a holiday right now? Are you feeling like everything will fall apart if you don’t get some rest? The problem is that rest seems impossible! Even in the most stressful times of life we must remember that there’s a promise from God that will help get us through. It’s a promise that we all really need today.
Today’s verse tells us how this works in our life. We are to come to & get away alone with Jesus. As we take time out to do this we’ll actually recover true life rather than lose it. We’ll actually take a real rest and not get busier.
I know all this sounds too good to be true but the reality is it actually works. As we give time to Jesus He maximizes the time that remains. We achieve more in less time and we get some rest as well. This promise is only available to born again believers. It is only possible as we come to & get away with Jesus
This week let’s just do it. Let’s find a private place to get away and talk to Jesus. Let’s not allow schedules, lists & demands to dictate our lives any longer. Let’s take control and recover our lives. Then we’ll get a real rest in His presence!
