Find rest in God's presence

www.todaysinfo.net
Tomorrow is Monday, AGAIN. It's back to work and school. Back to our daily grind. But one question comes to mind: "Have you enjoyed your weekend? Have you fully rested? How many hours of sleep have you done to make up for the hours that you should've spent sleeping? (I know there's not just one question but you get where I'm going, right? Oh well, another question.)

Many people think that rest can only be done by sleeping, going on a vacation, and having a break from all the stress brought upon by our work and many other engagements. Don't get me wrong, those are rejuvenating activities. But those are only flesh break. That explains why after an enjoyable weekend we feel already exhausted at the thought of going back to work. We want the week to fast forward already expecting for #TGIF to be around the corner. What we need is not a flesh break - a vacation,   or 12 hours of sleep. What we need is a spiritual rest that is holistic and relaxing.

The Bible reminds us to make the Sabbath day holy.

Exodus 20:8-11 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

Where can we find spiritual rest? Only in God's presence!
The Bible says that in the presence of God we can find and experience rest.

Psalm 62:1-2 “My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.”

Only then can we experience a rejuvenating and energizing experience when we bask in God's glory and love. Flesh breaks are only temporary - you'll be drained  and left unrefreshed in an instant. And only God can sustain us!

Be refreshed and revitalized in His loving embrace. Have a wonderful and restful weekend.
