Maybe we ought to study our addiction to activity -- maybe our activity is what is getting in the way of God really working. Sometimes doing nothing is what we need to be doing. Sometimes in the nothing is when big things are accomplished.
Like healing. If we've been sick and start to feel better we might start doing more things than we should be doing -- this happens to people all the time. A loved one has been sick and she's feeling better. So of course she over did it! And I've been sick. I'm still recovering. I feel guilty for not doing what I feel like I should be doing, but I know my body isn't up to full-strength yet and I need to get better. So, I'm doing a lot of nothing. I've taken a few naps. I've read a lot. I sat outside today for a while in my coveralls when the sun came out. Doing as little as possible is what I was supposed to do today.
How did our society get to where it's at right now? Where busyness is supposedly a sign of success or importance? This isn't a biblical belief. I'm sure the enemy is a fan of busyness and distractedness. It's hard to see God in those states of mind. God, in fact, tells us to "Cease striving and know that He is God." Psalm 46:10
He leads us "beside quiet waters" to "restore" our souls. Psalm 23:2-3
He will choose restoration over busyness every single time.
