THE LORD'S REST AND REFRESHMENT

 
Psalm 23:2


"He makes me to lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters."NIV


"He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters."KJV


In a recent poll on stress, 75% of the people interviewed said they experienced physical and psychological symptoms of stress in their lives. If we are following the Lord Jesus Christ, we need not be one of those people. Our Lord provides rest and refreshment one day out of the week, although many do not stop to follow Him there. He will take us to a place of rest and renewal any time we ask Him, if we take the time to ask Him.


Heavenly Father, You are well aware of the stressful world in which we live. We confess that we have learned to live with dangerously high levels of stress rather than to follow You into the full day out of the week You have provided for us to rest. You gave us this day of rest for a reason, help us to stop our busy lives and rest with You in lush green pastures and beside still waters. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
