One of the greatest things to insure the longevity of revival is being able to withdraw for a period of time to refresh and renew our body, mind, and spirit. Believe it or not, there is a limit to what our body, mind, and spirit can endure. Sadly, we fail to remember that. This produces the casualties of the ministry that we read about in the headlines. When we over extend ourselves, we become vulnerable to being blindsided by the enemy.

So, during this Thanksgiving holiday season, come apart. Put down the book. Turn off the CD player. Push aside the curriculum. These will all still be waiting for you next week. Go ahead and watch the Dallas Cowboys football game. Enjoy a fantastic meal with your family. Do a WHOLE LOT of nothing for a few days and enjoy every minute of it. It’s just what the Great Physician ordered.
