The God of Rest

by Berni Dymet

Mark 6:31 He said to them, "Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while."

Sometimes, I get all carried away. I love what I do, and before I know it, I'm so engrossed in this and that and the other thing - I forget to rest. Somehow, I think I can do it all….but none of us can. We need to rest.

Jesus sent His disciples out on a field ministry trip into the surrounding towns and villages. It was an amazing time of ministry.

But have a listen to what Jesus said to them - Come away to a deserted place all by your selves and rest for a while - because the crowds were following Him and they couldn't even have a quiet meal together. 

God is a God of rest. After creating the whole cosmos - He rested. In this rat race kind of world we live in, rest is something that so often we forget to do.

And in the middle of that - Jesus quietly draws alongside and whispers Come away to a deserted place with me, all by yourself - and rest for a while.
