Rest in Me

Beware the spirits of the age that would seek to tie you into a frenetic lifestyle of stressful, anxious living. Beware the enemy’s temptation, even through email and ‘social networking’, to lock you into unhealthy patterns of work and rest. Consider this carefully: do you have your priorities right? The Lord asks you directly today, ‘Am I your priority? Would I know it by your actions inmaking space for me in your life?’.

Times of rest in the Lord must be made, created – this requires deliberate effort. Ask for the Holy Spirit to give you the ability and power to overcome the ways and snares of the world. With deliberate-ness, make it a priority to root yourself by streams of water.

Psalm 1:2-3
But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.

  1. I am very impressed this morning by the counsel of the Holy Spirit! For only last night, on my facebook wall, I posted the exact same verse which the Lord had given me as bedtime reading, and then announced I was going to do a week-long "facebook fast"!!! 😀

      1. Thanks 🙂 … Though that was an advance notice to my facebook friends, as my fast starts on Friday night the 23rd and ends Friday night the 30th.
