It's Time for Rest
by Sheri Rose Shepherd

And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. — Genesis 2:3

If the devil can’t make us bad, his next trick is to burn us out.

I truly believe the cry of every woman’s heart is to be still, but we don’t know how to stop being busy.

Our soul longs for a moment of silence. I think that is why spas and yoga classes have become so popular; we women are so desperate for a moment of stillness that we are willing to pay for it.

Watch today’s video and review the list below, and give your soul a rest:

Here are a few things to help us be still…

…Take a 10 minute break—be still and listen to your favorite worship songs and soak in His presence
…Take a 30 minute fast from your electronics every day by turning off your phone, television and computer
…Pray and ask God to quiet your spirit and help you to be still.

Remember, Scripture says: “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” (John 10:27 NIV)

God's Letter to You

I believe if The Lord was going to write you a personal letter about battles this life brings it may read like this....

Beloved Princess,

I long to be closer to you. I’m never too busy for you, My beloved. If you will turn off the things around you that drown Me out of your daily life, you will begin to hear Me in your spirit. When you don’t know where to go, you will hear Me give you divine direction. When you are in need of a friend, you will hear Me whisper, “I am here.” When you need comfort, you will hear Me call to you, “Come to Me.” Don’t let your agenda distract you from time with Me. Quiet your spirit. Know that I am your heavenly Father and you are My precious daughter—and I love when you crave time to be still with Me.

Love,
Your King and the Voice of heaven

My Prayer for You

A Prayer for the Weary—
I pray in Jesus name that you will be refreshed by His love, and learn to lay your burdens at His feet. I pray that you will stand on His promises and find rest in knowing your God will take care of you. I pray you will allow Him to comfort and restore you from the inside out. May you have the peace of knowing that the Creator of everything loves you. May you be strengthened in Him so that you will be ready to fight any battle you may face. In Jesus name, Amen.
