Rest in God - Psalm 62:5-8
by Dionne Stratton

Psalm 62:5-8 "My soul finds rest in God alone, all my hope is in Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, He is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God for He is my mighty rock and my refuge. Trust in Him at all times, O people, pour out your hearts to Him for God is our refuge."


Jesus said, "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." (Matt. 11:28-29). The Bible speaks frequently of rest and of God's rest (Psalm 95:10-11). Sometimes when Scripture mentions rest, it means what we usually mean when we use that word - that is, to cease all activity (for example, God's command of rest on the Sabbath, see Exodus 23:11-12, Leviticus 23:3). But we all know that even as our bodies rest, our minds and our souls can be busy and restless. The kind of rest that God offers is the kind that can only be found in Him. This might sometimes include physical rest, but it always goes much deeper than that for God wants to bring rest and peace to every part of our being; heart, soul, mind, and body. We will find this rest as we put our hope in Him, for God alone is able to take care of us. He is the solid rock we stand on which cannot be shaken. He is our fortress, our refuge, our shelter; we are always safe in Him. He is our salvation. He did more than take away our sin, He gave us His righteousness so that no longer must we work to obey a law we have never been able to keep. He has done it all for us and works it out within us so that we may be at peace with Him and within ourselves; that we might come to know His rest. So when worries and anxieties begin to come over you, ask God to give you His rest and His peace. Decide to trust Him at all times and in all circumstances, for He will take care of you (Psalm 37:5).

Let us pray, "Our great and mighty God, abundant in grace and mercy, full of love and wisdom; all our hope is in You. You alone are the solid rock on which we stand, our refuge and our shelter. You are the God who saves, who rescues. Let all Your people declare what You have done. You made us in Your image and when we fell from that image through our rebellion, You sent Your only Son to restore us to You. Jesus, our Savior God, thank You for Your work on the cross that restores us to You and to the Father by atoning for our sins. Thank You for uniting us to You in Your death and resurrection (Romans 6:5) that we might receive Your righteousness and enter into Your rest. Lord Jesus, You said, "My peace I leave with you. It is My own peace I give you; not as the world gives" (John 14:27). Thank You for giving us Your peace that surpasses understanding (Phil. 4:7), peace that lasts forever and carries us through every trial and storm. Unlike the gifts of the world which are hollow and fading; Your gifts are true and eternal. Oh, God, help us to remember that You will take care of us. As You have said, "you are worth more than many sparrows and how much more will He clothe you, Do not worry then"(Matt. 6:25-33). Help us to trust and rest in Your unfailing love and in Your mighty power (Psalm 17:7), for You are our peace (Eph. 2:14). Amen.
