Galatians 6:14

But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Resting in Christ

Oh, to rest in Christ! What a sweet reality that is, especially to those of us who lead a busy life.
There is much rest and peace attained when we sit before the Savior like Mary did.
When we find our satisfaction in Christ alone, there is a freedom and a joy in our hearts and lives that cannot be gained by seeking out the things of this world.

Here are some Scriptures for meditation:

Isaiah 26:3,4: You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because He trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, for in YAH, the Lord, is everlasting strength.

Psalm 37:7a: Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him.

Matthew 11:28-30: Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.

Psalm 27:14: Wait on the Lord, be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart. Wait, I say, on the Lord!

Ending thought:
Resting in the Lord requires that we have complete trust in Him, and trusting Him results from seeking Him, so let me encourage you to "Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."
