You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You. Isaiah 26:3 (AMPC)
Being too busy isn’t so much about being actively involved in too many tasks as it is about over tasking and overstretching our minds with anything to the extent of being strained, frustrated, and stressed.
You can be too busy about and overly burdened by one teeny-weeny, minute issue. You could be the one who painfully labors and is heavy laden over the hair and dress style of a stranger!
So Jesus tells you “come unto me and find rest for your soul’!
But then there are people involved in so many relevant and important things but aren’t worn out. No one was ever so busy like Jesus and yet there was never a person as restful, refreshed, and refreshing to others as Him.
He was busy outside but calm and quiet on the inside.
Matthew 11:29 (AMPC) Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls.
Jesus was always rested and refreshed on the inside in the midst of a lot going on around Him because He kept His attention fixed on the Father.
John 5:19 (NLT) So Jesus explained, “I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by Himself. He does only what He sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, the Son also does.
Being too busy is having too much clutter and clamor in your soul. It is overloading your mind with a lot of cares and concerns. It is trying to deal with a lot of issues at the same time. This burdens one down and incapacitates them.
Slow down by focusing on Him who’s the yoke destroyer and burden remover – Jesus Christ the Anointed One.
Perfect and constant peace is a result of staying our minds (the site of activity) on the Lord who is the Prince of peace.
When we look to Him we receive from Him the Wisdom and strength that He freely gives to deal with and overcome whatever the issue at hand.
Fix your heart on His love and goodness and it will quiet you and you’ll be able to see and take advantage of His ability. This is the way to slow down and yet bring forth much.
