True rest comes from trusting in God.

“Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him…” Psalms 37:7

One day while in prayer, God reminded me how He has called us to rest. True rest comes from trusting in God. If I don’t trust how my husband drives, I won’t be able to rest at all when he’s behind the wheel. I will stay awake the entire time. And don’t let his knees start to shake. That means he is sleepy. Oh boy, now I really can’t rest. Some of us are just like that, we know God is behind the wheel, but we are wide awake, freaking out, wondering what He’s doing and where He’s taking us. Because we’re not in control, we’re finding it very hard to rest.

But the Lord told me to tell you, “You can rest in Me, My daughter. Don’t worry. I’m taking you higher in Me. I’m not going to harm you. My love does no harm. I only want to bless you. Give Me those cares and those worries of yours. Let me lift those burdens off of you in My presence. Rest in Me and wait patiently for Me. I am in control of your life. Let Me do what only I can do for you. Let Me make a way out of no way. Let Me do it. Let Me have the wheel while you rest. You’ll be glad you did.”

Prayer: Father, I hear you loud and clear. You are in control, and I need to rest. Help me trust you and rest in you. I thank you for how you love me. Thank you for teaching me how to rest in you while you take me higher. I receive your rest right now in my mind and heart. Help me rest in you and wait patiently for you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read and reread Matthew 11:28-30)

    1. My sister, you’ve cried out to the Lord and He is going to help you. Instead of being upset with God, be upset with the devil because he’s the one who attacked you while you were asleep. He’s the real culprit. Humble yourself by recognizing your powerlessness to sin and acknowledging God’s powerful grace within you that is made perfect in your weaknesses. the Bible promises when we submit to God and resist the devil, he will flee from us (see James 4:7). Love you and praying for you Johanna.

  4. I find resting hard because you can’t be successful if u r lazy. But I see resting can mean other things than literally lying in bed. Thank u for posts always helpful

  5. Our Father, help us to trust and rest in You no matter what it looks like to us. Helping us to come to you, casting our cares on You because You care for us. Helping us, Lord, to trust You and lean not unto our own understanding, but acknowledge You and You shall direct our paths. Help us, O’God, to give control to You that we will have the true rest that You want us to have in this world.
