Devotional Feb. 28, 2010

Mark 6:31 And He said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.
The disciples had been out on a mission. It is a wonderful thing that He chooses us to do missions for Him. When they were finished He was concerned for their health and welfare. If you are a boss follow the example of our Lord and make sure your employees have time for rest. This rest was a time of renewal and time with Jesus. It is important that we take time out with Jesus daily. Our rest may be found in Him.
If we do not rest then we will be to distracted to see the miracles that He does. When He and the disciples went to get away the multitudes ran ahead of them and met them. The disciples, I'm sure resented this intrusion. The miracle of the feeding of this multitude was missed in their aggravation over not receiving their rest. Jesus was not deterred however and got alone to pray. The disciples went on without Him. Consequently they ended up in a storm. Jesus saw them struggling, amen! and came to them walking on the water. When He got in the boat the storm stopped. What a miracle. This He did because they missed the previous miracle. If they had taken time alone and reflected after the feeding of the multitude then they wouldn't have faced the storm. Be sure to get your rest. Physical rest and spiritual rest. This is the Lord's day, a time for rest. Spend it in His house taking rest with Him and the family!
