Rest In Him
July 15, 2017

 Rest In Him

Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain. In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat - for he grants sleep to those he loves.
Psalm 127:1-2 
 

“I used to be a classic workaholic, and after seeing how little work and career really mean when you reach the end of your life, I put a new emphasis on things I believe count more. These things include: family, friends, being part of a community, and appreciating the little joys of the average day.” -Mitch Albom

Prayer for the day:

Lord, I come to you today to ask for your forgiveness because so often I keep myself so busy in building my career, my business, my ministry, and neglect my family. Thank you for reminding me through your Spirit and teaching me by your Word that if I labor on my own strength I labor in vain. Help me to be watchful over my life, and all you have given me. I know that no matter how much I try to keep watch, I will stay awake in vain if You don't keep watch over what I do and my family. Keep me from trying so hard in my own strength that I fail to trust and delight in You. Help me to understand that the real labour is to enter into Your rest. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
