Get Some Rest
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 NLT
We know that doing God’s work was and is important to Jesus but even He knew the importance of rest. Jesus is teaching us it’s important to step away from the hustle and bustle of life to take time to be relational with our closest friends and family and to be still with God.
This week, make it a point to plan some downtime with either yourself and God or with a few covenant relationships. God is calling you to find healing and restoration in the still.
Lord, we thank you for teaching us through your Son, Jesus Christ, that we can not do life without you. When everything around us is fighting for our attention, let us not be distracted. We take this moment to be intentional about creating a time and a place to be with you. In your name, Amen.
