Why Do I Resist Rest?

This past Sunday we concluded our series "Rest Stop" You can listen to the podcasts or download it by clicking here WYANDOTTE FAMILY PODCAST You can also watch the sermons on our NEW You Tube Channel  CLICK HERE 

This past month we learned so much about rest. We hear the challenge from the Bible and we have even agreed with it. Yet, why do we still resist rest? 

Psalm 46:10  
Be still and know that I am God.
Be still and know that I AM.
Be still and know.
Be still.

When we slow down and rest we are reminded we are not in control. That is a hard one for me. Surely all my hustle and bustle is the cause of so many good things (this is a time to seriously laugh out loud). When I let go I am declaring I am not ultimately in charge...God is!

When we slow down we are reassured and given new confidence in His presence. We can know in our hearts even though our outward circumstances are unknown. We can rest in the fact that we are known by our God and He is with us and He is working. 

When we slow down we have to be still. When we are still we hear His voice. When we slow down we face what is really on the inside. 

The amazing thing is when we do slow down in His presence we can BE again. No more pretending. No more hiding. No more covering up. We can be free in His presence. 

I pray you take time to rest daily and weekly with a rest day! You won't regret it!
