He said to them, “Come with me privately to an isolated place and rest a while” (for many were coming and going, and there was no time to eat).
Mark 6:31 NET
Jesus understood the importance of resting. He pulled His disciples away from ministry so that they could take some time to go to an isolated place, away from people, to rest and recharge.
In our fast paced world, we need to take this important lesson and apply it to our lives.
Eventually, we get to a point where our energy levels affect our thinking and physical abilities. Resting does wonders for resetting both.
The thing to remember here is that you belong to the Lord. He wants you at your best possible condition for doing the work that He calls you to do.
How do you rest and recharge?
Father, thank You for the understanding that we need to rest to be at our best for You. Help us to remember to rest in You, so that we can do the work You have called us to.
