This is one of the most critical and difficult aspects of our faith, one that everyone struggles with, one that is at the very heart of what it means to walk as a disciple of Christ. God wants us to learn to rest in him. To chill in him. To put our troubles on him and let him handle them.
All easier said than done, I know.
God, the Master, The Holy One of Israel, has this solemn counsel: “Your salvation requires you to turn back to me and stop your silly efforts to save yourselves. Your strength will come from settling down in complete dependence on me—The very thing you’ve been unwilling to do.” —Isaiah 30:15, The Message
How do we find rest in God? What does that mean in terms of concrete things: different attitudes, changed behavior, and a new approach to life?
