Come and Rest in My Presence

Your Monday devotion is compliments of mindfulchristianitytoday.com

____________________

I invite you to come and rest in my presence. Offer me your weary heart and soul with your cares and worries concerning your family and friends. The weight of your struggle makes you anxious, and you carry the responsibility of the world on your shoulders. Now is the time to focus your eyes on me.

There is no need to bear the weight alone because you can trust and know that I can provide a way of deliverance for you. You must learn to rest and abide in my presence. Rest seems to be a waste of precious time, but proper rest helps put your life into perspective. I created a Sabbath day of rest, knowing that my people won’t take the time to relax and revitalize their physical body and spirit.

It requires rest to heal your mind and refresh your spirit and soul. You avoid rest and stay busy to avoid listening in your heart to hear what I’m saying to you. I never intended a relationship built on fear or the need to perform to please me. What I desire is to walk and talk with you like Enoch walked and talked with me.

My one desire for you is to love me and reveal my love for the world around you. When you rest in me, your heart and mind align with my heart and soul. In my presence, my love will lift you above the issues you face right now. My power provides the resurrection hope that you can withstand any onslaught you face today.

So, come to me and know you’re not alone. No matter what struggle you’re facing, I am with you. Take a moment and rest in my presence, meditate on my word and hear my voice speaking blessing and life to you. Come and rest in my presence, and I will give you peace and hope for eternity.

Scripture:
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Mathew 11:28
"There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God." Hebrews 4:9
