The Lord is our rest.
We rest in Him.
The Lord also is our strength.
We must live in the strength of the Lord, not the strength of the flesh.
Living in the strength of the flesh while doing “good things” for God will lead to what the world calls “burn-out”.
If you are “burned-out”, then you are attempting to work in the flesh rather than in the Spirit.
1 I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.
2 The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
3 I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
6 Blessed be the Lord, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications.
7 The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.
8 The Lord is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed.
Be strong in the Lord and His strength.
Reject the strength of the flesh.
