Thought for the week by Pastor Diana Rutherford

by Struthers Cumbernauld

 'Then Jesus said, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.”'

Mark 6:31

Find a quiet place this week and rest awhile.

In the gospel we read;

'He said this because there were so many people coming and going that Jesus and his apostles didn’t even have time to eat.'

Find time to stop your comings and goings. Find time to rest and to be quiet. The devil makes us busy, the Lord leads us into rest.

'This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “Only in returning to me and resting in me will you be saved.' Isaiah 30:15

Resting in God means casting every burden, every care upon Him, learning to let go of all our worries and trusting that He can carry everything for you.
