THE WORD FOR TODAY
Job 7-9 (Click to read Today’s Word)
Job 7:3 3 So I have been allotted months of futility, And wearisome nights have been appointed to me.
Recently, right in the middle of very busy time I woke up one morning feeling like had worked all night. When I should have awakened refreshed, renewed and ready for a new day but I was tired from a wearisome night.
Job could be our companion in the conversation about wearisome nights. In all of his suffering…his loss…his grief the only thing could bring him comfort, REST, evaded him like shifting wind.
It is at this moment that I am so aware of my limitations. What can you say in response to man who seems to have lost everything and now can’t find the rest he needs. So can only rely on the Word of the Master to help me, “Come to me all you who are weary and heavy burdened and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28 God’s rest for the soul is RENEWING, REFRESHING, and RECURRING. At every weary moment of life I can recall times when God took over and gave me rest that brought things back into balance. Remember Jesus said, “Come to me all you who are weary and heavy burdened and I (Jesus) will give our rest.”
Perhaps today as you work through the weariness you can pray, “Lord I walk me through this day tired and beaten by the fray help me now my Lord I pray, my weary soul needs rest today.”
Lord I walk me through this day tired and beaten by the fray help me now my Lord I pray, my weary soul needs rest today.…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
