1. Rest – 7 Day Prayer Journey

Posted by rickhill on July 29, 2007

Sabbath. Rest. Set apart.

It’s not that God ever needed a rest. He doesn’t grow weary. Ever. But He knows us so intimately that He has set aside 1 day in every 7 for us to rest in Him.

You see, you and I so often get caught up in the things that fill our lives from Monday to Friday that sometimes we can lose sight of our Father who wants to be Lord of every moment. And so He created a special day to return to our first love and leave the worries of our lives at the door.

A day to be still and know that He is God. To grab extra time in His word and in prayer. To switch the mobile phone off. To enjoy time with those closest to us. To rest. To chill. To realign our hearts to the heart of the Father!

What a positive day! And what a great way to commence our Spark 07 Prayer Journey! We start from a state of rest. We begin by realigning our hearts to the heart of our Father God. And so today we encourage you to take time doing just that. Before our frenzy of activity next week, let’s be still, knowing that it’s God who will create anything good from Spark 07.

Father, thank You that You never grow tired or weary, and that You promise strength and power to those who call upon Your name. Lord, would those who rest in You today find themselves with a new sense of freshness and enthusiasm for all that lies ahead of them. Sustain us for the energy sapping days ahead. Realign our hearts with Yours. And help us be still and know that You are GOD.

“The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall, but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

Isaiah 40:29-31

    God I need to meet you, hear you forgive, love, speak words of wisdom, guidance and truth. Sorry for not making time to do that. Father I ask that there will be loads of time for me and everyone else this week. That we will serve you next week understanding more of who you are and who we are in you.

    In Jesus’ name
    Amen!
