The life of an entrepreneur is often hectic and it can be hard to take the time to rest. It seems there are not enough hours in the week to do all that needs to be done. But you must rest and Jesus tells you how.
First, be yoked, or joined, to him. Jesus wants you to walk closely with him and be joined to him, as two oxen plowing a field. The animals must walk closely together in the same direction to harvest the field for maximum yield. In the same way, walking with Jesus will give us the abundant life he came to give us. This close relationship is made possible by being born again and accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior. The precious gifts of prayer and the Holy Spirit are the divine means given to us to allow us to enjoy this close walk with Jesus.
Secondly, Jesus tells us to obtain rest, you must learn his ways, especially his humility, as you guide your business. Reading the Bible to intentionally study the life of Jesus will allow you to model your life after him in the power of the Holy Spirit. The Bible also promises that we will be conformed to the image of Christ and that God will continue the work he began in us when we gave our life to Jesus. Despite setbacks, you can confidently continue to seek rest in Jesus. Learn of the ways of Jesus and walk closely with him so that he can direct you to the rest God promises in Psalm 23. He will make you lie down in green pastures and lead you besides still waters.
Rest in Jesus today.
