Vital Signs - Tuesday, March 3, 2020


For many of us, we get so worried and concerned about what is going on in our lives that we don’t take time to rest.


Jesus shows us what we are to do when we are going through a storm, and that is rest. God does not want us to respond to situations with fear and worry. He wants us to cast our cares and burdens on Him.


We rest in God by trusting Him instead of trying harder. We rest by standing firm in faith and resisting doubts and distractions. We rest by taking a few days away in order to fast, pray, and worship. We rest by choosing to sleep peacefully as we trust God to work things out.


Thinking like a warrior is understanding when it is time to rest and when it is time to train. Even the best warriors don’t fight 24/7. Everyone needs rest mentally, physically, and spiritually.


Part of being a real threat to the enemy is knowing that you can rest in God and in the truth of His Word.


What are you resting in? Are you resting in your strength, your wisdom, your ability to respond to the enemy’s attacks? Or are you resting in God?



“On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.” Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?” And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!””

‭‭Mark‬ ‭4:35-41‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
