“Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him. Psalm 62:1“
In our weekday Bible study we’ve been reading a book, The Holiness of God, by R. C. Sproul. Last week one of the participants said, “we need to rest in God’s love.” What do you think that means exactly?
Well, to me, it means “stop worrying so much!” If God loves us and desires the best for us, we can rest assured that things will work out. Will they always seem to be going smoothly? Will only good things happen to us? Of course, the answer is a resounding NO. It does mean that:
“… in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
We can rest because God has a plan for us, and even when things seem to be out of control, they really aren’t. God’s got us and He’s not letting go. He is our hope and our salvation. We don’t have to depend upon the temporal things of this world. We can rest in His love. It’s the one thing we can count on.
