Rest for the Churches

[Saturday, July 30]

“See that I shall create seasons in which My Church shall experience rest and refreshing and they shall be comforted from the battles against them all around. Watch for these times of refreshing and expect My churches and My people to grow and multiply in exponential ways.”

Prophetic Scripture:

Then had the churches rest throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied (Acts 9:31).

When Saul was persecuting the Church relentlessly, it put a great deal of pressure on the Christians. However, after he was saved, it created rest for the churches. It gave them the opportunity to experience relief from the battles at hand so they could focus on growth. The Bible says it caused them to experience comfort and allowed them to multiply. The Lord knows that for His Church to multiply and be edified, there must be seasons of rest and refreshing. Yes, the devil still roams about doing everything he can to come against the Lord’s Church. So it doesn’t mean that we just take a spiritual vacation and take our eyes off of the enemy. A season of rest allows the people of God the ability not to spend so much time fighting battles, so they are able to experience growth. This included both local church growth and personal, spiritual growth as individuals. We need to take advantage of these seasons. They are the times to build our faith in God’s Word, examine how we are living, and refresh ourselves in the Lord. I believe God wants to pour these seasons of refreshing upon you, so be looking for them and ask God to help you
grow in amazing ways during these times.


Heavenly Father, I pray for Your Church worldwide. Cause churches, people, and leaders everywhere to experience seasons of refreshing so they can grow and be comforted. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
