What does Jesus mean when He says “I will give you rest.” View our discussion today.
The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
We often schedule time for rest or vacation and then wonder why we don’t feel more refreshed. Rest does not always come from lack of activity. Sleepless nights remind us that it takes more than simply lying down and closing our eyes. Anxious thoughts spinning through our mind while we try to relax make it clear that we can’t just flip a switch and turn our minds off.
True rest comes when we experience God’s presence in our lives. Our day may be filled with activities, meetings, and conversations, but if we’ve invited God into the center of our schedule, we can trust his timing and let go of the stress that comes from trying to control everything.
God is in control of your life and will give you the rest you need.
