For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. – Exodus 20:11

God created the week with six working days and day of rest, the Sabbath, for a reason. He created us in such a way, that after six working days we need a day of rest. We focus on our relationship with Him most of our sabbath, relaxing and only doing whatever work that cannot be avoided. This is for our benefit.

We also need to achieve the right balance between work and rest daily. If there are activities that leave us feeling drained, tired and exhausted all the time, we need to pay attention and take action.

We also need to listen to our body and behavior. If we start to have frequent headaches, different body aches, neck pain and muscle soreness; if we find ourselves getting upset, angry or offended easier; if we feel depressed, stressed and cannot justify many of our activities, then we have reached the point of being physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually exhausted, or to put it simply: burned out.

When we are that tired, even a vacation with lots of activities can make things worse and when it’s over, we will need a vacation to rest from our vacation. We need to identify the areas where we feel the most effects of being exhausted, ask the Holy Spirit to show us ways to get refilled in our drained areas and to help us determine the right balance between our work hours and rest on a daily basis, to be most productive and still keep our peace and joy.


Dear Lord, please help us keep You first in every area of our lives and please teach us how to organize our time, so that we will be productive and get enough rest, too. Please help us to contact You in prayer all the time, and to follow Your guidance in everything we do. We have so many responsibilities and only with Your help can we stop feeling exhausted and tired all the time.

Help us to pray and worship You, to be refilled and able to accomplish our tasks and keep our joy and happiness. Lord, help us to never get out of balance, but to keep the right work-rest ratio, living an anointed life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen
