Rested & Ready


Then he lay down under the bush and fell asleep. All at once an angel touched him and said, “Get up and eat.”

–1 Kings 19:5 NIV 

People are so busy with the challenges of life today. There is so much to do and so little time to do it all. Whether caring for our family, working at a job, or even volunteering at church, it is easy to become overwhelmed.

Balancing responsibilities can leave you feeling exhausted, but fearful of rest. What if you miss something or forget something? Many people may be counting on you, but how can you meet expectations if you are burned-out?

Take time to close your eyes and receive His perfect peace. As a child of God, you can rest assured that God will provide for you. Once you have rested, God can reset you in a way that only He can.

Whether you are coming out of a storm or entering one, when it is time, He will prepare you to continue on the perfect path He has paved for you.

Prayer Focus

  • Pray for God to give you rest and renewal in every area of your life.
  • Pray to be receptive and obedient to hear Him and follow His path for you.
