Rest from My Sorrows

Scripture Isaiah 14:3 It shall come to pass in the day the LORD gives you rest from your sorrow, and from your fear and the hard bondage in which you were made to serve,

Observation: I just finished teaching a class on Heaven and I’m more homesick than ever. To imagine to have rest from my sorrows and fears, when now it is hard to sleep with all that is on my mind. The hard bondage of making a living and being held captives to my thoughts.

Application: However, I’m called to live this life for Christ and to help lead others home. I need to have heaven in my heart and thoughts at all times living this life to glorify God. My journey is getting closer to an end and the prize of being with my Lord is greater than anything I can imagine. Allow God to guide me to the finish line.

Prayer: My Lord help me to have thoughts of you. Help me get through these fears and sorrows I now suffer and fill my heart with thoughts of you and of home. May I live the rest of my life here in glory and honor to you.
