BLESSED FROM YOUR PLACE OF REST
   
  SATURDAY
OCT. 25
   
 

Psalm 127:1-2 (GNB)
If the LORD does not build the house, the work of the builders is useless; if the LORD does not protect the city, it does no good for the sentries to stand guard. It is useless to work so hard for a living, getting up early and going to bed late. For the LORD provides for those he loves, while they are asleep.


Psalm 127, verse one, describes building and watching, while verse three talks about bearing children or fruitfulness. Whatever you desire to build, whatever you want to watch over, and whatever kind of fruitfulness you desire in your life, as you rest in God, you will experience His hand in those desires of your life. In the King James version, verse two of our text says; He gives His beloved sleep. From the Good News Bible used above, we see why God gives His beloved sleep. God gives His beloved sleep because, it is only when they are at rest in Him that He can really move in their lives and bless them abundantly.

Sometimes, the devil comes to steal your peace so that when your heart is troubled, you are unable to hear from God and receive His directions and blessings. It is similar to how God had to cause Adam to fall into a deep sleep in order to move and bring out the rib from which He made Eve. The reason God does not sleep nor slumber is because, He is watching over you and He is working on your behalf. Because He lives and holds tomorrow, you can also live and face tomorrow. You can rest in His love.

Remember, your resting in God does not in any way imply that you should not work hard or that you shouldn't pray. You should work hard and pray, with the consciousness of God's love, blessings and promises. You do not fret and worry like people without God and without hope. The reason you have rest is because you see God working on your behalf and in your favour. Is the Lord involved in your affairs or are you worrying and struggling without His help? When you are asleep, you are not conscious or disturbed by what is happening around you. Your focus remains on what God has promised you and what God is doing.

DECLARATION: Dear God, I thank You that I am resting in You. I am confident that You are working out Your purpose and good pleasure in my life.
