Prayer: Father I thank You that in Your presence there is rest. Help me to take time to truly rest in You, trusting that You will take care of what I am stressed about and fight for me. Amen

Scripture: Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Psalm 91:1-2 NIV

There is rest in the shadow of the Lord. I wonder if you rest. Do you take dedicated time to rest from the never-ending school work? Do you take time to stay off your devices? Do you take time to read the Word and dwell in His presence? If not, you are missing out on one of the greatest benefits of being a child of God. Begin with a small time period. Increase your rest time and place boundaries around it. Let nothing interfere with your Sabbath time with God. He designed rest as one of the essential benefits to your Christian walk. He can be heard a lot better when all the distractions are laid aside. Trust Him and rest in Him.
