The Lord never intended for us to wear ourselves out serving the Lord while neglecting our bodies. Even to the disciples he said:
"And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat." (emphasis mine)
The things we should do in order to get enough rest to serve the Lord with all our strength are simple things that we often forget.
- Go to bed.
- Pace yourself.
- Take time to come aside and rest.
Prepare yourself to serve the Lord by getting enough rest.
