“I’m tired” I thought.
I am reminded again as Psalms 62 says God is the only place of rest. My plans, even the best ones I can imagine are not a place to rest. They are unstable and always subject to change. Resting in God my rock is the only place I will not be shaken.
To learn to rest I must practice. When I’m wondering and scheming for the future I must remember his promises to me.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.(Jeremiah 29:11)
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.(Romans 8:28)
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.(Philippians 4:19)
Question: How do you practice resting in the Lord?
Challenge: Search your heart for an area you are not resting. Search the Bible to see what God has to say about it.
