“Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.”Psalm 62:5-6
Do you know someone you’d characterize as a godly person? Ever notice how uncomplicated his or her life appears to be? The person has a full schedule and heavy responsibilities, but he or she is no stranger to crushing trials. Yet beneath the surface stress, there is peace.
How I long to have more of the rest that Psalm 62 speaks of in my own life. When we look to God to be the source of our rest and the solution to our fears, we discover that He is enough. We do not need to remain slaves to worry and anxiety. We can stop searching for people who will listen to our litany of problems; look to Jesus instead! Our trust will not have been misplaced when we put it in the One who is our rock, salvation, and fortress.
Something is lost. Tell Him. You suffer from burnout. Tell Him. Disappointment has shattered your dreams. Tell Him. Make the Lord your sense of inner rest and strength, even while the world tells you to find inner peace in yourself. The answer is Jesus, the One who is enough to give rest to your soul today.
Have you tried to lean on the Lord while relying on earthly props at the same time? Trust fully in Him. He is enough!
