SLACK TIDE

READ:
Mark 6:30-32


He said to them, “Come aside by yourself to a deserted place and rest a while.”
-Mark 6:31

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Psalm 97-99
Romans 16

I find it fascinating to consider the pull of the moon on the great ocean, which creates high and low tides. At the changing of the tide, there is a brief period of time called “slack tide” when the water is neither high nor low. According to scientists, this is when the water is “unsettled”. It is a quiet pause before the surging of tidal flow begins again.
Sometimes in our busy schedules, we may feel pulled in different directions by competing responsibilities. In Jesus’ ministry, we see how He understood the demands made on His followers and the need for rest. Returning from travelling ministry in teams of two, the Twelve reported the wonderful things that God had done through them (Mark 6:7-13,30). But Jesus responded “‘Come aside by yourself to a deserted place and rest a while.’ For there were many coming and going and they did not even have time to eat. So they departed to a deserted place in the boat by themselves” (vv.31-32).
What responsibilities are pulling on you today? It is certainly acceptable to plan some rest and relaxation time to rejuvenate your body and soul for more fruitful service to others. Jesus advised it, and we all need it. He will meet you there - Dennis Fisher
My Shepherd is the Lord
Who knows my needs, and I am blest;
By quiet screams, in pastures green,
He leads and makes me rest. – Psalter


Spending quiet time with God can bring quiet rest from God.

ENLIST A STRONGER ALLY

Its amazing that some people who need deliverance do not realize their need; rather they look for others to deliver while they remain in their bondages.

Are You Feeling Insecure? (2)

‘Get yourself ready! Stand up and say to them whatever I command you…’
Jeremiah 1:17 NIV
Are you embarrassed about your beginnings? Jeremiah was. He begins his book by listing the good people an the bad people in his background. Well, guess what? We all came from a less than perfect gene pool!...More
LIVING RIGHT
Open Heavens
for Thursday, June 12, 2014
by Pastor E.A Adeboye

LIVING RIGHT

A child of God is the light of the world. Light is the direct opposite of darkness. Everybody welcomes light with a shout of joy. Where there is light, hidden agendas are revealed. Jesus expects us to prove Him right by living according to His description of us. The implication of being called a child of God is...More
