Abundant Rest

“May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole,” 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 (MSG)

In pursuit of abundant life in Christ, it is so easy to mistake more for better and busy for important. Wholeness takes time. Holiness is the work of God, the love of God, the truth of who you are in God created through your relationship with Him. Relationship takes time.

“May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together—spirit, soul, and body—and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ. The One who called you is completely dependable. If he said it, he’ll do it!” 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 (MSG)

The Lord isn’t slow in keeping His promises. He is faithful to complete what He has started in you.
The very best thing you can to do is spend time with Him. Rest in His love. Let Him work. Trust Him. Put yourself and what is weighing heavy on your heart into His Hands. He is patient with you (and with others) because He sees more than you do, His reach extends yours and His knowledge is not hindered by time or eternity.

God knows real change takes time and He is willing to wait. Take a deep breath, slow done. Pause and sit quietly before Him. In music, the rests are as powerful as the notes. Rest in the love of Jesus today and give yourself permission to stop worrying about all the things you can’t control.

The secrete of living an abundant life in Christ is accessed through abundant rest and allowing Jesus to work His love, peace, hope and truth into your soul as you spend time with Him.
