“He offers a resting place for me in His luxurious love. His tracks take me to an oasis of peace, the quiet brook of bliss. That’s where He restores and revives my life.”
As typical day for me involves a lot of running around looking after the needs of my family, grabbing any spare moment to get some work done and all the while running a home with all the mental load that goes along with it. I’m sure you can relate. One of the big challenges for women in this generation is over-scheduling. Whether we like being scheduled up to our noses or not, the world we live in glorifies being busy. This is why we need to be so intentional on using our time wisely and in doing only the things that glorify God.
In Psalm 23:2-3 (TPT version) we are drawn into the beautiful imagery of where our Heavenly Father’s path takes us. Guided by Him, we find a resting place. It is safe and peaceful. It has a quiet brook to quench our thirst. We receive rest and revival.
Life with God, equips us with a source of constant refueling. We have His rest and restoration available to us whenever we need it. We can find this path through our time in prayer and His word and keeping a trusting and obeying heart.
Are you allowing the Father to lead you to the quiet brook of bliss?
Father God, I thank you for your protection and guidance. I thank you for leading me to your resting place – your oasis of peace and your quiet brook of bliss. I need your restoration. I invite you into my life as my Shepherd and my Saviour. I commit to following you.
In Jesus name’, Amen
