When He Gives Rest

“Therefore he said to Judah, ‘Let us build these cities and make walls around them, and towers, gates and bars while the land is yet before us, because we have sought the LORD our God; we have sought Him and He has given us rest on every side.’  So they built and prospered.”  2 Chronicles 14:7

God’s rest meant Asa could build and prosper.

Lord, help me understand what You want me to do in the rest You give today. And here’s a simple poem . . .

A Seeking Rest                                                 

We may not all get
a physical vacation

we many not all be able
to have down time today

but we can relax
in what we’re doing

finding rest in seeking
Him always.

Drawn To Jesus

“Then all the tax collectors and the sinners drew near to Him to hear Him.” Luke 15:1
“And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, ‘This man receives sinners and eats with them’.” Luke 15:2

I marvel at how Jesus – so holy, pure, divine – could draw the exact opposite kind of folks (like me) to Himself . . .and continue to draw them to this day.

Oh Lord, help us receive all those You came for, in Your same Spirit and love. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Well Received

The crowds were forming
bigger than the Pharisees drew

His words were flowing
in a manner that grew

hope and life from what
was crushed and pressed

that gave forgiveness,
freedom and love’s rest.

Presence Promise

“My Presence will go with you and I will give you rest.”  Exodus 33:14

God was considering sending the children of Israel on up to the promise land without Him.  Moses prayed.  If God couldn’t go with them, he asked to just not go.

Jesus, I long to stay in Your Presence and to only go if You come too.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

The Favor of His Presence

Come into My Presence
find rest within My grace
then rise up and go out
face what you must face.

I’ll yet be with you
covering you in love
for you have found favor
through Christ My risen Son.

Where have you gone today with God?
