Ever since starting my ministry and writing my book. The Devil has a new line that he loves to throw me and it goes like this.
“If you ever stop and just rest, everything will fall to bits around you. You only have yourself to rely on, so you better work yourself to death because everything you care about will crumble if you don’t. “
Ever heard that one? There is often heaps of guilt thrown in with this one so that when you do rest for just a moment the feeling of failure can be unbearable.
The truth is we are not going to be able to keep reaching out to people if we don’t rest. We are human and we need to look after ourselves so that we can look after others. The people you are reaching out to that you love, God can and will carry them even when you can’t. They matter even more to him than they even do to us.
Dare to rest. Decided to take that week off and rest because God believes in rest thats why he created the 7th day.
