Some Great Advice

Mark 6:31 Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”

This morning I thought about some of the advice I have received over the years. We all enjoy great tips and insights that are simple, but profound.

One great bit of advice I received came in a ministers' conference meeting. The speaker set up what he wanted to say by promising to share a secret with us.  Then he gave us the secret:

"Get some rest and you will hear from God."

Rest does wonders for your spirit, soul, and body. Whether that rest is nightly, or weekly personal Sabbath day, or a vacation where you actually "vacate."

Even Jesus saw the need to pull his disciples aside for some rest and quiet. He still sees that need in us.

There is also the daily principle of "resting in the Lord." (Heb. 4:3) This is where we trust God to empower us moment by moment. I once heard a person define this type of rest as, "Using the power of another."
