Entering into HIS rest

1 Comment

I am a „Doer“. I find it hard to sit down and do nothing. I always find something that still needs to be done. I do know times of rest, breaks, where I can rest from my work, of course – but those times sometimes feel like a waste of time to me.

Four weeks ago I started my maternity leave from work, which is 6 weeks prior to birth in Germany. Sometimes I was wondering what I would do with all that time. Of course there were things to do around the house – things I wanted to get sorted and stuff I wanted to clean. But the point came when all of my scheduled projects where done. Getting stuff done was getting more and more difficult with my belly growing. One day I sat on the couch and felt so very lazy and then God’s spirit spoke to me, using the words from Hebrews 4:10-11:

“Anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest…”
He showed me clearly that I can enjoy this time of rest as something very special. Yes, it’s kind of like “the stillness before the storm”. However, I get to learn a whole new kind of “rest in HIS presence” during this special time. I greatly enjoy those moments with Him, recognize Him more clearly. This encourages me a lot to soak up new strength from these times of rest; knowing where the fountain is. Just as it is written in John 7:38:

“Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”

I get to drink from the eternal fountain and get refreshed. I want to speak that over your life, too. Let Jesus refresh you. You also will find places or times in your daily life where you can simply rest at His heart, where you can relax and be filled with the refreshing, living water that’s flowing from Him.

  1. Danke Corrie! Ruhe brauche ich auch !!! Ich lerne es immer besser!!! Bei unseren Gott ausruhen ist das Beste!!! Möchte so gerne mit dir Kaffee trinken Bibel lesen usw. Es tut mir leit dass wir so weit von einander getrennt leben!

    Du bist in meinem Herz!!! 😘
