Rest is hard for a person who is always on the go trying to make things work. He or she has a list of goals or tasks to achieve for that day. They are busy at life doing stuff that they think will matter, which is not bad, but they have not stopped to evaluate. Life is not a to-do list of goals; life is not the first one making it to the mountain top. We are here to do what we can do and allow God to rest while we rest.
Rest is not easy because you have to stop the process of being a boss and take a break from those problems. God wants to solve your money problems; He wants to rescue you without helping. He has no plan for us to do this by ourselves. God is the potter, and we are the clay. The potter puts his hands on the clay and shapes us to become pliable and not resist from being reshaped. When he shapes us, we receive restoration, which is renewing the mind, body, and spirit. In the end, our rest is a rest from the “gotta do it “or performance-based results that will bring us into the total restoration of our mind, body, and soul.
