Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him…Do not fret it only causes harm
-Psalm 37:7,8 NKJV
Have you ever been exhausted from an intense workout? Pushed to your limits you finally get to rest. You sit down, take a cool sip of water, and catch your breath. It feels good to let go of all the tension and the stress. Well that is a small example of what it is like to rest in the Lord.
In order to rest in the Lord you have to trust in the Lord. You have to trust His word above what you see and feel. In times of waiting guard your heart from worry because worry only causes harm. Worry can cause you to lose sleep, become sick, and even make irrational decisions that you wouldn’t make if you were resting in the Lord.
So instead of waiting anxiously, wait patiently. When you wait patiently the stress is not on you, but the burdens are appropriately on our Father in heaven to carry. So if you have a burden take it to the Lord in prayer. Rest in the Lord today.
But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint -Isaiah 40:31
