Rest

“Let us take care lest we get out of soul-rest in seeking further blessing. God cannot work whilst we are anxious, even about our spiritual experience. Let us take Him at His Word, and leave the fulfillment of it to Him.” – Miles Stanford, The Green Letters

I thought after taking a short break for Christmas, that we would start our first post off with a bit about Rest. Often, as we are busy doing God’s work in our ministry, we forget about this important principle. We need to rest on the Lord. We get stressed and anxious about Sunday, our ministry, and our normal issues that come with life. Slowly, we quit growing, and what does not grow, dies. Often, we just need to take a step back and look to Him before we are too far gone and Spiritually bankrupt. Once we hit that point, we can become burnt out and just about worthless to the work that God has led us to do. Do not let that happen to you! Take a step back and rest in Him!
