Today’s Scripture: Like livestock that go down into the valley, the Spirit of the LORD gave them rest. So you led your people, to make for yourself a glorious name. Isaiah 63:14 ESV
The Spirit of the LORD is our only true source of rest. We can long for rest; long for a break. Do you have things in your life wearing you out?
The Spirit of the LORD will give us rest. Like Isaiah in 63:17 I wonder why God made us this way. Why did He make us to wander away from Him and fear other things over Him. Yet, ALWAYS when we exhaust all other searches for hope and rest He is faithful to save us and give us rest.
Exhausted and bloodied we often return to Him like His people of Israel and recognize His peace and His steadfast love. He never left us, we just wandered off. Wandered off chasing selfish desires or false promises this world offers.
Praise be to God for He is faithful. He gave us His Spirit that never leaves us and if we live in His praise and live in His Spirit He saves us and gives us His rest.
Has something caused you to wander away? His Spirit awaits to give you rest.
Today’s Prayer: Mighty LORD, Mighty Savior thank You for picking me up and carrying me. You Spirit of love and rest always welcomes me. Although I do not understand my tendencies to wander, I do know Your Spirit of love, rest and peace. Thank You LORD for giving me rest in You. Keep me in Your ways. Amen.
