God’s Love For You

Psalm 62.jpgTruly my soul finds rest in God, my salvation comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation, he is my fortress I will never be shaken. How long will you assault me? Would all of you throw me down, this leaning wall, this tottering fence? Surely they intend to topple me from lofty place, they take delight in lies. With their mouths they bless, but in their hearts they curse. Yes, my soul, find rest in God, my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God, his is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, you people, pour out your hearts to him for God is our refuge.

Psalm 62:1-8

Find comfort in knowing that God is perfectly good and strong. If God was good but lack strength, we would have no stronghold in times of trouble. If he was strong, but not totally good, his massive strength could be terrifying. God’s power is a threat to all those who oppose him. Remember Jesus is the Good Shepherd and the Good Shepherd knows his sheep and his sheep knows him. (John:10) We can always feel safe and secure in the arms of the Good Shepherd. The best way to avail yourself of His protection is to trust him totally. Jesus¬† unfailing love surrounds all those who trust in him. So your most important task as one of his sheep is to keep on trusting in him, Jesus is the perfect Shepherd of your soul. Find rest in him alone, for he is a surrounding stronghold of unfailing love.

Rest

Exodus 33.jpgGod tells Moses in the book of Exodus 33:14, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest. There are times when you are quiet weary, and all you can think about is finding rest. However when we do lay down to finally go to sleep our minds are somehow racing of the many things ¬†that we need to take care of. As a result, our awareness of God’s presence grows dim. God assure us through that even when our attention falters, He remains steadfast. We need to rejoice that the God who always take care of us has an infinite attention span! Even the most devoted parents cannot be constantly attentive to our children. We need to be able to sleep sometime, as well as we do get distracted by other demands in our lives. Many deeply loved children have drowned when their devoted parents took their eyes off them so briefly. Only God has the capability of watching over His beloved children continually–without the least interruption. Instead of worrying about where and when you will find rest, remember that God has promise to provide it for us. Worrying wastes vast quantities of energy–the very thing we need most to help us to find a resting place. When you are diving your can with little gas in the tank and the nearest service station was far away, you would drive carefully and steadily so as to minimize gas consumption. Similarly, when you are low on energy you need to minimize consumption of this precious commodity. Go gently and steadily through your day, looking for God to help you. Rest in the knowledge that God watch care over you is perfect. Thus, you make the most of your limited energy. Whenever you are struggling with weariness, come to Jesus and he will give you much needed rest.
