Busyness, tiredness and stress – these are things that affect many of us in these days. Diaries are packed full and we jump to the next thing, to the next, and to the next, without a pause, without time to rest. Life goes at a fast pace but who set that pace?
‘Children I have not made you to be those that are tired and stressed; I have called you to be ones that know My rest, My rhythm and pace, and work from that place of rest. Look to Jesus to learn My pace and rhythm. There were great demands on My Son’s time when He walked this earth; He could have worked 24/7 but instead He aligned himself with Heaven, with My voice and My timing and pace. Children, it’s time to realign your lives, your time and your diaries with Heaven.’
Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed.
Yet the news about him spread all the more, so that crowds of people came to hear him and to be healed of their illnesses. But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.
