In a world that never "sleeps" I am starting to feel like I do not either. So much on my mind as of late and I simply am not able to keep up with the constant changes. My mind is blurry from being in overdrive and I pray without ceasing. . .
And then He answers me with a simple word. . . rest.
Psalm 62:1 "My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from Him."
Psalm 91:1 "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty."
Isaiah 32:18 "My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest."
God intends for us to rest in Him. He tells us repeatedly to cast our cares upon Him. It is not just a coincidence that EVERY book in the Bible has at least one verse dealing with worry/anxiety.
He knew we would have troubles; however, He never intended for us to deal with these burdens alone.
It's raining; it's pouring, the old man is snoring... because he gets that God is in control.
God, take this cup from me as Your word says You will. Take these cares and bless this life in Jesus name.
