My Daily Journal:
Where in your life are you trying to settle? I hear it all the time. When things calm down then I will… I’ve just been so busy, but someday… When I retire, I am going to…
The people at this time decided to settle. They found a nice place, a lush valley, and they settled. It was time to enjoy their kingdom. It was time to build the things they wanted to build to make a name for themselves. It was time to work on their legacy, as the saying goes.
But God didn’t call them (or us for that matter) to settle. He called us to take His word to the ends of the earth. He called us to do His will. While we have breath left in our body, there is work to be done.
It is not that God is against rest – He created it. But rest is not a destination. Rest is part of the rhythm of life. God has so much more for us – why would we every want to settle for less?
