Rest in Him

I know some of us are struggling with the fact that no matter what we do, life just seems to never work like we planned. You have tried everything and the struggle just never ends. God is calling you to rest in His promises.

“For thus says the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel:

 “In returning and rest you shall be saved;

In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.”

 But you would not,” Isaiah 30:15

God is telling us that we need to return to Him to be saved.

We need to be quiet and have confidence in Him for strength to face life.

All the worrying and hassling you have been doing to solve all your problems alone, how well has it worked out for you?

I have gone through a lot in my life and I spent literally years trying to figure things out. I started getting answers when I learnt to just relax in my God. I learnt to just believe His Word. It really is that simple!

How can you do this? Rest in Him? See the verse below:

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

Instead of worrying, pray.

Instead of being afraid, thank Him.

Instead of struggling, tell Him your requests.

That is when you have the peace that no one else understands. People would wonder why you are so calm. The answer is simple; your peace comes from how big your God is and has nothing to do with the circumstances around you!

Please comment below if you would like to understand better and I will respond better!
