Then Jesus said "Come to me all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
Praise God, I was finally able to rest last night. I have been sleeping, but never really resting. Something happened last night and I felt very sick and uncomfortable and I heard "rest" in my heart, so I layed on the couch for most of the night and I feel refreshed and alert today.
A few weeks ago I wrote about the inbetween times, about how sometimes we may feel like we are just making it, no purpose, no reason...just alive. God showed me today that those are some of the most important times in our lives. It's a time when everything is quiet, slow and uneventful.
Our people should learn to spend their time doing something useful and worthwhile.
Titus 3:14 CEV
We are all running a marathon. The inbetween times are times to be used for rest and training. Training means reading your Bible, going deeper in the Word, doing devotionals or a book study. Listening to teachings on CD, learning all you can about walking with God, no matter how mature your walk is, we never truly know everything. We all have to do training for our races.
