Are you weary, overwhelmed, finding it hard to see God at work? Is it hard to keep your focus on Almighty God?
Praise God He is available. Praise God He opens His arms and says “Come”.
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
God wants our souls to be at rest. He is our burden bearer. So we take the step to come to Him. Then what?
Be silent before the Lord God!
For the day of the Lord is near,
For the Lord has prepared a sacrifice,
He has consecrated His guests.
Be silent. Take time away from the hustle and bustle, demands of the world, burdens of ministry, lack of peace.
Even Jesus, the Son of God, being God Himself sought solitude with the Father.
After He had sent the crowds away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray; and when it was evening, He was there alone.
In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there. Mark 1:35
After bidding them farewell, He left for the mountain to pray.
But Jesus Himself would often slip away to the wilderness and pray.
It was at this time that He went off to the mountain to pray, and He spent the whole night in prayer to God. Luke 6:12
This time is taken to stop stressing about provision, focusing on troubles, and fearing, but a time to be strengthened, uplifted and to focus on God.
‘Do not fear, for I am with you;
Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, surely I will help you,
Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
Yet those who wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.
I will personally be taking a week off to focus, seek and reconnect with my Lord God. I know that I will be refreshed, strengthened, and ready to serve my God without weariness, running the race without getting tired. I would appreciate your prayers during this time. I plan to sign off social media tonight and return on November 1.
🌹I leave you with this:
The Lord bless you, and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine on you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance on you,
And give you peace.’
Continually Seeking Him,
