Sometimes the most spiritual thing you can do is just go take a nap. That’s because when you’re physically down, it’s hard to be emotionally and spiritually up. The legendary football (U.S.) coach Vince Lombardi said, “Fatigue makes cowards of us all.” That’s true. It’s amazing how much better things look when you’re rested.
If you’re discouraged right now, it might not mean you have to make a change; it may simply be that you need some rest.
Farmers know that soil needs rest, so they rotate their crops and systematically leave a portion of their land fallow. They do this because land that has rested produces a greater harvest.
About one hundred years ago, a businessman named Frederick W. Taylor did a scientific study on the workplace and productivity. Do you know what his study proved? People will produce more if they have periodic breaks; and from that, he introduced the coffee break.
Resting is spiritual. The Bible says God “enjoys giving rest to those He loves” (Psalm 127:2). You may need to put that verse on your refrigerator. The Bible says it’s vain for you to rise up early and stay up late.
The Bible also says, “You made my body, Lord; now give me sense to heed your laws” (Psalm 119:73). What are His laws for the body? Eat right, rest, get your sleep, exercise, and WORSHIP!!
Rest is so important, in fact, that God put it in the Ten Commandments. In essence, He said, “Every seventh day you are to rest.”
THIS IS A DAY TO WORSHIP! COME ON OUT TO BETHLEHEM TODAY! I KNOW THAT GOD HAS AN AMAZING WORD TO GIVE TO YOU!
