REST

18 Mar

Last Friday’s 5 Minute Topic was

REST

1ocean

That word has been resonating with me all weekend.

REST

Not something I do well

As I pondered, 2 things came to mind.

1 – Psalm 46:10 He says, “Be still,
-cease striving
–simplify
–stop
–shhhhh
–REST
and know that I am God.
I will be honored among the nations. I will be honored in the earth.”

I honor Him when I am still – when I stop MY striving
and KNOW HE is all,
KNOW HE is in complete control,
KNOW HE is completely GOD!

2 – This song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6Fw8DgvTQA
Find REST my soul
In Christ alone
Know His power
In quietness and trust…

Because when I find REST in Him
I demonstrate my trust in Him

    I love that translation of Psalms 46 that says “cease striving.” Such a reminder that God doesn’t want me to be restless, but “rest-full.”
