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.
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.
