God sometimes gives us a rest period that is wrapped up in a “seemingly” impossible situation and can only be fixed by Him. By rest I don’t mean it’s a grab your favorite pj’s and blanket and pull the cover over your head kinda rest… this is a holy rest. It doesn’t really look or sound like rest to others and not even to yourself at the time. But holy rest is a set time for a set purpose…set by God.
A calmness of mind. Peace unexplainable. Simple defeat of past enemies, trying to rob our rest. It’s sustaining rest of the Holy Spirit. I stumbled on these words today from March 9th in (my favorite) Streams in the Desert devotional (p104) “Bearing the burden of crushing weight actually gives christians wings.” This was in reference to Psalm 55. “Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you.” Psalm 55:22 God is developing our faith.Rest in the Lord and allow Him complete access to your heart to deal, heal and conceal all that concerns you. REST and be RENEWED. Our dependence on Him is vital when the going gets tough and the tough get going! Our part is to keep moving, keep going, keep serving, keep sharing, keep growing, keep surrounding ourselves with the kingdom, keep our eyes on Jesus and spread our wings to……FLY!
