What are some of the things the Lord has done for you lately? I’ve been able to successfully come away and rest a while. I write more about this principle that has served me very well over many years of ministry below:
The atmosphere was brimming with joy. The disciples had, before their eyes, seen demons cast out, the sick healed, and a multitude of people attain salvation. What could be better? The press that accompanies success was around them – people everywhere. Yet Jesus, being experienced in these things, asked the disciples to come away, and rest a while. In another scripture, Jesus admonished them not to rejoice for these successes, but instead to rejoice for their names were written in heaven.
How I Do it
A secret that has served me well, is my ability to come away and rest a while. I get in solitude with my maker. You see, God’s Manna is sufficient for the day. If you hoarded it, it would be stale by the morrow. That’s why scripture says: “Give us this day, our daily bread”. I get quiet in His presence by listening to worship music, reading His word/ Christian books, and praying. God then floods my heart and mind with peace and a knowledge of what it is I am to do next. Come away, rest a while.
Come Away, Rest A While
Do you feel burned out? Feel like nothing is going right and that your usual strengths are failing you? Then it’s time to come away and rest a while. Have you just closed the biggest deal of your life? Then it’s time to come away and rest a while. Jesus beckons you to spend time with Him, so you receive the strength you need for the next leg of your journey.

Amen. Pastor Uche. The Lord has done it again and again oh. I have one bedroom flat for me and my family in it. Sir God is faithful to me – Thomas Uyeme
Previously, Thomas wrote: Man of God sir, I need to leave the house I am living now and get a new apartment for me and my family to live in.
Until next time, remember, Jesus Christ loves you and so do I.
