Lie Down or Fall Down…But Your’e Going Down!
I was reading this the other morning…
“He MAKES me lie down….” Ps 23
I have so many friends that seem to strive on being “busy and over scheduled.” They love being in demand and running full blast. I know, because I was one of them! But no more.
If we don’t take time to “Lie down” and allow God to lead us to the “stil waters” then our souls cannot be “refreshed.” We wont sit quietly in the presence of our enemies and enjoy a victory meal!
If you don’t lie down, you fall down! And that fall my friends is very painful at times. It’s like having the choice to dismount a bike when your’e tired, or keepÂ peddlingÂ until you plant your face in the pavement. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like walking around with a torn up bloody face.
That’s the thing, when you don’ t lie down, and you end up falling down, many will see the fall! It not only hurts you, it hurts many of those around you.
Take out your calendar, ask God, “When do you want me to lie down?” Ask God when He wants you to rest. It’s not when you “feel” you need to rest, but when He wants you to rest. Don’t endager all that God has for your future by being a Pig-headed stubborn dufus!
Lie down…Or fall down. But one way or the other, You will go Down! Choose the former. Listen to God.
