Be still in the presence of the LORD, and wait patiently for him to act. Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes. – Psalm 37:7 (NLT)
It’s easy to get worked up about little things. I remember a time when I felt like some other youth in my youth group were being treated unfairly and it really bothered me. I wanted to take action and see results.
Often, it’s easy to want to do, do, do. We want to do something to make the results we want. And it feels better and easier to do something rather than wait for God to take care of it for you.
However, there is wisdom in practicing rest. Instead of getting worked up about things, rest. Relax. Trust God that He is always working for you. He wants good things for you.
Today’s Truth: Rest. God is working on your behalf.
Today’s Bible verse is a great reminder of this. We should be at rest, seeking God’s presence and waiting patiently.
So if you’ve been guilty of getting worked up or upset, choose today to rest. Know that God loves you, He’s always fighting for you, and you can simply rest and enjoy His presence in your life today.
