Yes to the no’s

img_5110Every season God requires a different Type of obedience to Him.  There are some moments that we can count on the constent demands pulling on us, and then there are others that God simply requires rest in the everyday routines that only require basic functionality. What is your response to resting? Do you have thoughts about resting or do you understand what resting means? In some seasons the only requirement is Our relationship with God and our maintenance to our families. These moments are often tough because we want to live in the “more” with the perspective that the “more” proves that we are in His will. Doing more does not necessarily mean we are effective. It is important to embrace our seasons of rest because when it’s time to work again we would have taxed and poured out at the wrong time. The busyness of our faith is not always Gods intent. Sometimes busyness can be a vortex of trials painted as service to God. Sometimes his intentions are that we rest in His presence and at His feet. Let us look at two women that knew how to lean into obedience weather that meant to work or rest. Luke 10:38-42 depicts a difference in posture. One breakdown said According to the Gospel of Luke: As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. What is your posture in the presence of the master? Are you looking to be found hard at work? Or are you looking to sit in the moment that could change your life forever. We always reward the worker bee and we consider the ants but what do we say to the woman that longs to rest in the masters hands and just to sit at His feet. What do we say to the woman that wants to simply drink from His cup. Let us consider the worshipper.
