God gives you His rest

Sometimes, our computers or smartphones fill up…I’m sure this has also happened to you: too many background tasks, too many memory processes. In this case, the solution is simply to restart the device. The screen gets dark for several seconds, and then the system asks you for the password again. The device often functions much better and faster after restarting!

That’s what happened to me a few years ago during a time of sabbatical. God allowed me to “reboot” my internal and external being. For a period of several weeks, I had lost my creativity. But thanks to this time of rejuvenation, everything came back into order, allowing me to function even faster and with renewed passion! It was also at this time that God placed the vision in my heart to start “A Miracle Every Day,” which now blesses many people, including you I pray!

Did you know that God Himself rested? After busily working for six days to create the world, God rested on the seventh day. Then, in the Ten Commandments, He instituted a rest for His people: the Sabbath.

This weekly rest in the Old Testament was a representation of the perfect and eternal rest that Jesus would one day bring by coming to this Earth. This rest isn’t a product of our works. It’s founded solely on Jesus, who says to us, “‘Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.’” (the Bible, Matthew 11:28, NKJV)

Do you feel weary, weighed down, worn out? Come to Jesus now. He is your shepherd, and He will give you rest, physical rest, as well as mental and spiritual rest. He keeps in perfect peace those whose minds are fixed on Him. (see Isaiah 26:3)

Here’s a step you can take: take a few minutes to come away with the Lord and let Him minister to your heart. I invite you to enter into worship with this lovely song by Kari Jobe, “Here.”

Let yourself be led by Jesus (He is gentle and lowly in heart), allow Him to teach you (He is the perfect Teacher), and your life will find fulfillment in divine rest.

    Thank you for your obedience to rest and birth this ministry, every single devotional has been exactly what I need daily these past few weeks, and just this morning I was thinking of how tired I am and God led me to the scripture you quoted above. May God continue to bless you to reach more with His message of love and restoration!

    Just by reading this message I felt God’s presence and know that everything is going to be alright. Going through such trials as struggling with health issues(which I believe was brought on by a mental and physical burnout) God has given me rest through this process of healing. Your message makes me realize I can continue to move foward and have peace and joy in the process. It reminded me of God’s goodness and that He will never leave me or forsake me and all I have to do is call on Jesus.

    Thank You!

    Eric, I pray that God blesses you beyond measure. That this ministry continues to grow. I feel that everytime I read these devotions, that God is talking to me. I was just talking to my family about prayer and about how How tells us to come to Him and He will give us rest. I pray that you hold on to Jesus and never let go of His hand. There are so many Christian’s looking back like Lots wife did. Pastors, evangelists, singers and so on. Let us unite in prayer for those who got confused so that they would come back. Let us pray for those of us who serve the Lord, to hold on. In Jesus name. God bless you Eric and thank you for existing.

      Thank you Eric for A Miracle A Day you encourage me to press on and not give up because God will give me a miracle to fit my need. God is a healer and in His mercy will restore unto me the joy of my salvation, and the joy of being at peace within.
