CAN'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER
When you think of someone resting, what example comes to mind? Could it be a person kicking back under a shady tree with a hat pulled over their face? Or, on the other hand; what about someone not resting? Could it be someone working up a sweat in the hot sun planting a new tree? Well those example may seem good, however, the real truth may be just the opposite of what you think. You see, you can be in that prone position as that first person, but in your heart and mind there is restlessness and anxieties and fears. Or, you could be as that second person who is working up a sweat, and yet be at total peace and rest.
You see, true rest is not that outward condition but itʼs that inward condition which is of the heart. Itʼs that peace of knowing that there is a God who loves you and cares for you. It is Godʼs Holy Spirit who is dwelling in you, comforting you and giving you a hope regardless of your outward condition. Oh what peace and joy we have in Jesus. "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." (Matthew 11:28-30) So, in him we have true rest. So, why not put all your trust in God and let Him lead the way for you. Remember, Father truly knows best and he will direct all your paths.
