Yes, my soul, find rest in God, my hope comes from him….(Psalm 62:5)
In a world filled with constant calamity what we need most is rest in God. There are many things taking place outside of our control. We’re still living in the midst of a pandemic, along with many, many other struggles taking place around us. It’s easy to get caught up in the chaos and start being controlled by fear instead of resting in God.
When my daughter sits still with me, it brings me great joy. It is good for me to have her near me. To feel the warmth of her heart nestled next to mine. There’s peace that we share together in that moment when she sits still long enough to let me embrace her.
Friend, this current chaos in our world, it just isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. The good news is that God isn’t going anywhere either. He’s here, waiting for us to find rest in Him. Truly, we cannot worry about tomorrow or even today. It will rob us of the joy and peace that is ours if we’d simply be willing to sit still with Him.
That’s the only true way out of this pandemic. It’s not an answer found from within something man can do for us. The answer is found in the eternal being who waits for us to meet with Him, so that even if we are struck with sickness, disease or some other struggle, we can find the peace we need in knowing that God sees all things and that He is good. For that, dear friends, we can truly rest in Him and praise Him. Won’t you join me?
Lord, thank you for your love. Truly, it is all that we need in this life. You are the joy and delight of our hearts. May we always be resting safe and secure in your love. Be our hope in this crazy world, we pray, in Jesus name, Amen.
