RUN/REST Day 36
Sometimes the greatest healing we receive is experienced through the simple act of rest. Are you willing to run after that healing today?
📖 𝗥𝗘𝗔𝗗: Mark 3:1-5
Jesus had an opportunity to heal someone that had been unwell for a long time. After all, he had come to bring good news to those who were hurting and heal those who were broken. The religious leaders expected Jesus to fulfill the letter of the law and do no work on the Sabbath, but he chose to heal anyway. Why do you think religious leaders would be so upset with Jesus healing someone?
There is a lot of information available on the benefits of rest and how healing it is for your body to get a good night’s sleep. Rest is important. It can be tempting to give up rest in order to work harder, but rest is necessary and it can bring healing in a way you might not expect. How can you set aside time today to rest so that you can heal? Ask God to show you where you need healing. Ask Jesus how you can rest in him, knowing that the love he has for you is enough.
