This morning as I was praying, the Holy Spirit prompted me to go to the wall and rest on it. As I followed these directions I was reminded of a lesson I taught many years ago on “Resting in God,” and for this blog I am going to share portions of that lesson with you; however, before I start sharing let me say in this tumultuous world I am so glad I know God and can find a resting place in Him. Without His presence in my life, I would probably be crazy. I am so grateful that He chose me and allowed me to be a citizen in His kingdom, and I pray you to feel the same as I do.

The ideal spiritual life is one of unspoken joy, peace, prosperity, and continual favor. Believers erroneously feel that to be saved means to live an enchanted life entirely trouble free or where problems are instantaneously fixed and where miracles never cease. These feeling and thoughts are lovely and can be found in the promises of God; however, these promises can be foreshadowed with sacrifices, weariness, pain, desperate days, and trying nights. As believers, we will have test, trials, and temptations, but we can make it through them all if we learn to rest in God.

First and foremost, we can rest in God because He owns everything (Psalms 24:1). His supply is unlimited, and He can meet our needs (Philippians 4:19), and He is there to pick us up whenever we need His assistance (Psalms 37:23-25).

As God does His part, I am responsible for not holding anything back, but I am to cast all my cares on Him (1 Peter 5:7). I am to daily follow Him (Luke 9:23), wholly trust Him (Proverbs 3: 5-6), not be anxious for anything (Philippians 4:6), and continually thank Him for His provisions (1 Thessalonians 5:18).

While I am patiently and consistently doing my part, God is restoring and bringing me peace. Despite what I may be feeling or see coming to pass, I am to be assured that everything is working together for my good (Romans 8:28; Corinthians 4: 17-18).

Lastly, because I acknowledge God as my King I rest confidently in His Word and ability. He is unchangeable, He is dependable, He is omnipresent, and He has an eternal plan; so I gratefully rest in Him.
