It’s amazing how the moments I would have called boring when I was younger, I now call relaxing.

When you think about it, trouble, turmoil, conflict and drama are never boring.

So many times we can let the desire for or pursuit of excitement let us take for granted those peaceful moments that we can easily call boring.

I like to equate those moments to what the bible called ‘a season of rest’…

1 Kings 5:4 (KJV)
4 But now the Lord my God hath given me rest on every side, so that there is neither adversary nor evil occurrence.

This is when Solomon focused on building the temple.

But he later used the peace God gave him as a time to backslide…

1 Kings 11:5-7 (NKJV)
5 For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, and after Milcomthe abomination of the Ammonites. 6 Solomon did evil in the sight of the Lord, and did not fully follow the Lord, as did his father David. 7 Then Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the abomination of Moab, on the hill that is east of Jerusalem, and for Molech the abomination of the people of Ammon.

In a season of rest, he went from building God’s temple to building altars for idols. This was the most wise man who ever lived.

So, thank God for those ‘boring’ moments in your life. And, don’t let the thirst for excitement get you in trouble.


God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
