Part 18: Knowing His Best...Walking in Rest!
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Knowing His Best...
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6, 7 NIV
Walking in Rest!
Rest comes through release. Release is "placing" something into God's hands; rest is "leaving" it in God's hands. When something is released to God it is placed under His authority and given to His control. Release frees you from manipulation and from the burden to have the final say. Rest does not ignore personal responsibility but it does release the weight of it. Rest casts all cares on Him and leaves all burdens at His feet. Rest says, "God will sustain me"..."The battle belongs to the Lord"..."The Lord cares for me." Rest asks for God's way and waits for God's time.
