    Wisdom Quote # 8 - The Wisdom Garden (Volume 1)

    Our major misconception to the new life is that we are activity oriented and not rest oriented in our souls. Christ did not invite us to come to him and labor but to rest.

    Stories are told of how many ideas and insights that were applied by great inventers, composers and artists came while they were in the shower or in their dreams and sometimes in the environment of total peace like in the woods, or near large water bodies. Something is common in these environments, it is rest. We are living in an environment that is always calling us to action and yet the action is driven from outside ourselves. The majority of this activity wears us down and produces very little for ourselves.

    It is those who can get time of quietness and rest that gets the insight and tools to be in control. We cannot be in control of what happens to as a result of so much activity, but by few focused well thought of, intelligent and strategic actions.

    God, the Master, The Holy of Israel, has this solemn counsel: "Your salvation requires you to turn back to me and stop your silly efforts to save yourselves. Your strength will come from settling down in complete dependence on me —  The very thing you've been unwilling to do.  [Isa 30:15] [THE MESSAGE bible]

    Some parts of religion have embraced this aspect of rest and quietness and have principles of meditation to tap in accessible resources that are beyond the natural. Naturally rest was given in the creators plan as he set a day for it, put it in the separation of day from night and giving everyone the gift of sleep for the purposes or rest, refocus, rejuvenation and restoration.

    What kind of rest do you have access to, so that you can operate from, a place where you can settle down and reflect and adjust to see things clearly? I know one place that we have been given access to. It is given by the one and only Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who gave an invitation to rest saying,

     "Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me — watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly." [Matt 11:28-30] THE MESSAGE BIBLE

    The best actions that we can take are those we begin to do from the finished work of Christ, which is the greatest rest accessible to us. Whenever you see yourself engaged in so much activity that has little productivity take some time to rest so that you can develop better ways to produce fruit. The secret to productivity is operating from rest. Look for the next rest that you have access to before you are burnt out in so much activity that has little productivity.
