Why do you think we have to be doing all the time? How can we expect to hear if we are concentrating on our doing? If Jesus Himself spent more time alone, quiet, before His Father, then He did in doing miracles. Then why do we think we can be holy apart from resting in our Father? Why do we ask for signs and wonders without first going to the Father as Christ did?
The more time i spend alone with God the more i realize He is the source of all i do. i am coming to see that in the doing we get the credit. We say i did this and that, me me me is the focus. In resting we get no credit. We are just what God created us for, fellowship with Himself. No pomp just rest. Maybe this is why i am finding people have such a hard time just resting in The Lord . No focus is on them. Funny thing is i find i get more done and with peace in my heart when i first seek and rest in God.
Abba Father give us hearts of rest. May we only desire to seek You O Lord.
Father break me, empty all of me out. Fill me with only that which is You Lord. Place Your yoke alone upon my neck.
