One of the realities of living in a stressed out world is experiencing restlessness. While we all experience restlessness from time to time, God wants to empower us to overcome it and experience real rest.
We often think experiencing rest is about getting enough sleep or doing things we enjoy. While there is value to those things, they cannot give us true rest. To experience true rest, we must understand that we need to experience it on the inside. Rest is a spiritual need.
Only God can satisfy our spiritual needs. The starting point for experiencing rest for our spirit is understanding that rest starts with a relationship with Jesus. In John 10:11 (NLT), Jesus reminds us of who he is, “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep.” Jesus was the Good Shepherd to David, and He’ll be the same Good Shepherd to us.
If you don’t know Jesus as your Good Shepherd, let today be the day you give your heart and life to Him and start your relationship with Him. If you already know Jesus as your Good Shepherd, continue to depend on Him as He guides your life.
Is your spirit at rest? Enter into the Lord’s rest today. It liberates us from stress!
