I have had the privilege to take a little rest from work and be with the kids this week. It has been very good and it also reminded me that rest is not a place or a day of the week. Rest is embodied in the person of Jesus Christ.
One can take a day off but continue to be physically active. Or one can have enough discipline to stop but have the mind and emotion rushing all over the place. Unless one enters in communion with Jesus, one will never experience true rest.
Be still and know that he is God. In quietness is our victory. Let the peace of God that surpasses all understanding rule your heart.
