You Are Never Too Busy To Rest In The Lord

There is danger to being too good at what you do. You know who you are. The one with seven or eight balls in the air and a hoop twirling around your ankle. You’ve got so much stuff going on that you are busy all the time. Part of that may be perfectionism that won’t allow you to let other people do anything. And part of it is that what you do is very complex and needs your full attention all the time.

That’s not a bad thing, if you are doing it with God’s blessing. When do you stop having His blessing? When you stop trusting Him. When you stop spending private time with Him. When you get so busy that you forget, or just don’t have time.

Make the decision to find your rest in Jesus.

That’s when trouble starts to happen. Burnout sets in and you get exhausted, or sick. That’s because you let your shield down and enemy is allowed to take pot shots at you, and he will. You are called to rest in the Lord, even in the middle of all that you do.

For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: In returning and rest you shall be saved; In quietness and confidence shall be your strength. (Isa 30:15)

No matter how busy you are, learn to rest. Learn to trust God to help you through the day. He can do things with time that you would not believe. He will give you the help and resources you need. Just rest. You need it more than you know.
