I’m having one of those days. Or maybe it’s a week…or weeks. I know my Redeemer lives. In the end, He will stand on the earth. (Job 19:25). This is good news. And I praise my God.
But today, I want Him here right now. I need His rest. I need His presence.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart. “Trust in Me with all your heart. Do not lean on your understanding.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
It’s not my understanding that I should be leaning on. This rough day, or season, may not make much sense. Or it may just be that: rough. If I lean on my own understanding, then I will be focusing on making this season end. If I lean on my God, then I focus on Him.
And that’s my call. That’s what He says. Trust Him. Trust Him with all my heart. Trust Him with all that I am and all that I have. He will make my paths straight.
On days like this, He will make my paths straight. On days like this, He will give me rest.
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
I come to my Jesus. I trust in my God with all my heart. He gives me rest and He makes my paths straight.
I will have days like this. We all have days like this. But my God never changes. I will have days when my joy is unspeakable and overflowing. My God never changes. I will have days that are mundane and routine. My God never changes.
Through it all, I trust. Through it all, I come to Him. Through it all, He gives my rest.
