Speaking from my own experience, I truly understand that working for 16 hours a day isn’t fun. If you worked like that for a long period of time, you would long for a sleep-in!
Although the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ lasted for only three years, it was hectic and heavy in nature. And because of that, after a long day of serving others, He even fell asleep on a boat in the midst of a storm. Let’s ponder Matthew 8:24.
24Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.(Matthew 8:24 NIV)
Let’s pose a question to God. “Dear Lord, my work is hectic and heavy, how can I have time to rest?”
Let’s practice what you learnt. Pray for the time to rest in your stormy world.
Let’s proclaim to others about your experiential knowledge. After a hectic day, share with a colleague the rest that you had in Jesus Christ.
