Resting Equals=PEACE


Matthew 11:28 says” Come unto me all, ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.

Have you ever felt so relaxed that you had to pinch yourself to make sure it’s real? I know sounds strange, right? But often I find myself given a problem to the Lord and I walk away with such peace that I am relaxed mentally, physically and spiritually.

Could this be what resting in God is all about? I believe so. Now I am not saying that I got it mastered, but what I am saying is there are those moments in my life that I literally walk in peace.

To be able to relax in God is an amazing experience, the stress and uncertainties are gone. Each time this happens I literally must pinch myself because I can’t believe it’s real, not saying that His peace isn’t real.

No! His peace is very real what’s shocking is that I am seeing myself resting in God without even giving it any thought what so ever.

Going back and check myself to see did I even had a problem that I gave to God, because I never experienced this type of peace that I can relax. Every day is a day for growth and maturity in Christ.

Why do I tell you this? Well pretty simple because when life brings challenges our way and when we pray to our Father in Heaven many times we don’t trust God enough to rest in Him. God is telling you that when you come to Him He wants you and I to leave in peace knowing that He will take care of our affairs.

Now go and rest in the Lord!

  1. Exactly! Once you understand that the Lord wants to take all your burdens, your problems, worries, fears and concerns, you will be blessed with “spiritual coping skills.” Then life’s problems become a lot easier to handle, and the Lord straightens your path.

    1. Barbara you are so very right. Lif’e’s problems are much easier then not having the peace of God. This was a hard lesson for me to understand.

  2. Yes, this is a wonderful reminder. I have found that, when I DON’T leave with that precious peace, I have failed to truly let go of the thing I have handed to God. Thank you for sharing your faith in God with the world, in such a beautifully fresh way!

    1. My sister thank you for sharing your experience as well. I am learning that in this life whatever I face I must have Christ peace.

      Without it I am a wreck. God bless you and have a blessed night.
