ODM February 2023 DAY 6

Topic: SLOW DOWN: COME APART OR BREAK APART!

Basic Scriptures: Mark 6:30-36; psalm 1:1-6; 30 The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to him all they had done and taught. 31 Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”

32 So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place. 33 But many who saw them leaving recognized them and ran on foot from all the towns and got there ahead of them. 34 When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.

35 By this time it was late in the day, so his disciples came to him. “This is a remote place,” they said, “and it’s already very late. 36 Send the people away so that they can go to the surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves something to eat.” Our Daily Manna Devotional (ODM) Monday 6 February, 2023.

psalm 1:1-6; “Blessed is the one

    who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
    or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
    whatever they do prospers.

Not so the wicked!
    They are like chaff
    that the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
    nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
    but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.

Today’s first scripture Vs. 31 says: “And He said unto them, ‘Come ye yourselves apart unto a desert place, and rest a while; for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.” The importance of this scripture lies on the fact that the statement was made by Jesus.

The summary of the above scripture is that Jesus was asking His disciples to slow down and take things easy because it’s only one life. We live in a fast-lane world where everything and everybody seems to be in a haste/Most of our New Year resolutions actually accelerates our pace of life instead of helping us to slow down.

In a quest for greater productivity and efficiency, we over-schedule our days.,” then rush through meals, drive impatiently, and wonder why the joy of living eludes us. Carol Odell penned: “Slowing down can positively affect our lives at work and at Rome.” She believes that rushing can cloud our judgment and cause us to overlook important things and valuable people. Our Daily Manna Devotional (ODM) Monday 6 February, 2023.

Carol encourages ‘everyone to slow down, and even suggests the radical idea of welcoming red traffic lights and using the waiting time to meditate. In this year 2023, It is in your slowing down moments that meditation is possible! Psalm 1:2 says: “But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night.” It describes a person who enjoys the blessings/favour of God. The Secret Is Creating Time To Meditate! Our Daily Manna Devotional (ODM) Monday 6 February, 2023

So;, when you slow down, you meditate not only on God’s Word but .also on your choices and decisions. Isaiah 26:3 says: “You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, because He trusts in You.” Someone
has said: “If you’re working hard to make a living, never taking time to smell the roses; now’s the time to heed the Bible’s wisdom: Find true joy before your life’s day Closes/’ Hear Havner: “Come Apart And Rest A While Or You May  Just Plain Come Apart.” God forbid! Learn to slow down or  you break apart! Peace!
