Return to your Rest

Psalm 116:7 Return to your rest, O my soul, For the LORD has dealt bountifully with you.

Good day dear friend. I hope you have had a good night rest. There are two kinds of rest, physical and spiritual. Physical rest is vital for our well being. God created night so that we can rest.

A good physical rest is necessary for mental health as well. Sleep is a great gift of God. A newborn sleeps for most of the time and slowly our sleep reduces. In old age good sleep is a luxury.

Do you think God is concerned with your physical rest? Yes, he is very much concerned!

Mark 6:31 And He said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while.” (For there were many people coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.)

Jesus encouraged his disciples to take a break and rest. How much he cared for his own. He would have never desired that his disciples should burn out. Although work was immense and needy people flocking towards them. Yet Jesus instructed them to rest.

There is another kind of rest that is Spiritual rest. The day to day burdens of life make us weary. The cares and concerns of life cause restlessness deep down. It can be a source of hindrance to our spiritual growth.

Mark 4:19 but the worries of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.

Our soul needs rest. Where can I find rest?

Matthew 11:28-29 “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.

Jesus is calling. He has an exchange offer. He is offering a partnership. He is not taking away burdens but he is going to help you carry forward all the burdens. In spite of those burdens you will experience rest. It is a supernatural rest.

So for what are you waiting for? Go to your partner, he is willing to help you.

May Lord Jesus, comfort you with these words. God bless you. Please share this message if you find it helpful. God bless you.

With lots of love β™₯️ Have a rest filled today. πŸ•ŠοΈ

  1. Glory to God. The Lord provides rest for our body, soul and spirit while we are alive. I pray that we will enter into God’s rest and not wait until we are dead. Then it will be a different story. God bless you and have a blessed weekend.
