Preached on resting in God recently. Programming rests and refreshes me. Just added better grass.
But what is it to rest in God? It’s not just doing something restful good though that is. It’s saying to him “I trust you in this situation”. it’s singing
“You alone are my strength, my shield
To you alone may my spirit yield
You alone are my heart’s desire
And I long to worship thee”
It’s not focusing on terrible things that might happen but on the wonderful thing that has happened.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
It’s knowing that whatever happens, there will be grace for the day.
he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me 2 Cor 12:9
It’s asking for approaching God and asking for help:
Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Heb 4:16
Give us today our daily bread. Matthew 6:11
