Thursday: Unless God is our Rest

Thursday, June 30, 2011

Thursdays theme was Unless God is our Rest.
The devotion included the verses Psalm 46:1-3.

Psalm 46:1-3
1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.

The devotion started off with sharing a time where I was incredibly tired- the first story that I came up with was a point on Tuesday afternoon when I was working on the roof and was very tired and a little bit frustrated.
We talked about how exhausted everyone felt at that point of the week due to long hours working and too few hours of sleeping.
Rest is very important to our lives.
But sometimes restless situations can take our rest from us.
That is when we especially need to trust God to supply our rest.
No matter what the situation, the trouble, the fatigue - God can and will supply rest.
Something that was definitely important to know especially at a point when we were all feeling fatigued.
God will supply our rest.

Psalm 127:1
Unless the Lord builds the house,
its builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
the watchmen stand guard in vain.
