Getting Some Rest
Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
Real rest comes from God. It is only for those who choose to “live under his shelter.”
Psalm 4:8 In peace I will lie down and sleep,
for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.
Matthew 11:28-29 Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
God provides every kind of rest for me physically and spiritually. Sleeping pills and positive thinking might provide quiet for a little while, but real rest and peaceful slumber is what God gives to those who trust in him.
Thank you so much for taking away my guilt and shame so that I can enjoy real rest. Thank you that even in sleepless and restless seasons of my life you are here with me and providing rest when there otherwise shouldn’t be any. I think of the time when Rob was very sick and in the hospital and I had an unexplainable time of rest in the waiting room. Only YOU can do that! I’ve experienced it firsthand and appreciate it so much, and I thank you for giving me rest in every way a person needs rest every single day. I love you so much and thank you and pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
