No rest for Him

I had a dream two nights ago.

In the dream, I was handed a slim Bible. Somehow, I knew it was an NIV version I had been given. You know how dreams can be? That knowing without anyone saying anything to you? Events after the handover were not distinct, but when I woke up, I picked up my Bible, and I went to Isaiah 62.

See what verses 6 and 7 say:

“….You who call on the Lord,

give yourselves no rest,

and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem

and makes her the praise of the earth.”

I felt so encouraged, and did spend some time calling on the name of the Lord. Again last night, I called on the Lord, reminding Him that He told me to bug Him.

I wanted to encourage you, so I am sharing what encouraged me.

Hold on to Him. Bug Him. He asked for it, didn’t He? He won’t complain.

And maybe the answers won’t come immediately. But rest will, and that assurance that He is sorting it out for you, according to His will.
