Rest from Struggles

Hebrews 4: 10-11

There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his.

Have you been dealing with personal struggles so long, you just don’t know what to do? Many people have personal struggles. Parents struggle with raising kids to be a consistently kind and productive member of society. It’s hard work because kids are notoriously resistant to rules and discipline. Good parenting takes plenty of time, money, and dedication. Some view their “empty nest” days as the light at the end of the tunnel.

God wants you to continue in your work until it’s time for the baby bird to leave the nest. When you’ve finished preparing your young one for the “real” world, your rest should begin. This is when you put your faith to the test. Do you really trust God? Do you think he can look after your children better than you can?

There will be a time of resting from your current struggles. When that time comes, relax and trust God to do what you no longer can do.
