Rest is so important to your spiritual walk. I didn't used to think that, I used to think, it was more important for me to run. However, as I have matured in the things of Christ, I understand how important rest is, and to honor the sabbath. It isn't just so we can be refreshed and restored but it also says to God, that we trust "Him!"
We know that Ecclesiastes tells us that there is a time and season for everything, well what do you do, when Daddy says rest? You do what He said, you rest. Rest allows us to be renewed in our minds, spirit soul and body. Rest gives us more strength and provides more focus. There are so many promises when we rest, and when we hear Daddy, say rest, it means for us to rest. He knows what's best for us. His rest destroys yolks, relieves burdens and restores us. Matthew 11:28-30, reminds us of the promise that comes when we rest!
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
29 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.
30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Resting refuels us and teaches us to yield ALL authority to our HEAVENLY father, don't ignore your seasons of rest, they are significant important for your now and to your next season.
