Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams].

— Ephesians 3:20 (AMPC)

God Works While You Rest

Adapted from the resource Starting Your Day Right - by Joyce Meyer

Being well-balanced means that you don't do too much of one thing and not enough of another. If you go overboard to be disciplined, you can become legalistic, rigid, and boring! Learn to have fun too.

Don't spend the whole day working, but don't be lazy either. Ask God to help you balance hard work and rest. Stop working long enough to be thankful for all God gives you to celebrate throughout the day. As you rest in God, He will continue working in you to help you become all He plans for you to be.

Prayer Starter: Father, I come to you in Jesus’ name. Your Word says we are the temple of the Holy Spirit and that You live inside of us, so I pray for guidance to take the right amount of time for myself, for the right amount of rest, the right amount of sleep and the right amount of laughter and enjoyment. Help me be well balanced, Lord, amen.
