-Ask yourself… when does the day start for you? When you wake up? When you come home?

-The Jewish day cycle is sundown to sundown.

-Are we supposed to work so we can rest… or rest so we can work?

-Scripture Referenced: Romans 12:15, Genesis 1,

Psalm 23 (NKJV)

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.

3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

-There is a rhythm of rest and work found in this psalm as God allows us to rest… so God can then lead us afterwards.

-There are times when God MAKES us to lie down (v 2).

-Sometimes the race of life does not allow us to notice the need to rest.

-After rest, God leads us to still places… before leading us to paths of righteousness (vv 2-3)

-Even when we walk in various “valleys”, God is with us (v 4).

-He even goes ahead and prepares what we will face next (v 5).

-The byproduct of Godly rest and work is goodness and mercy (v 6)

-“Enough Is Enough” may mean something different to different people.

-For some “enough is enough” means you have gone too hard and now need rest.

-For others “enough is enough” means you have rested long enough, and now God wants to lead you on.

-God’s “restoration” (v 3) happens in the middle of the leading; not just in the resting.

Ask yourself: Is God asking you (or “making you”) to lie down and what is stopping you if God is?

Ask yourself: Is God asking you to trust Him and get up from a time of rest so He can restore your soul as He leads you?
