Joshua 19-21: Rest All Around
The Lord gave them rest on every side….”
Rest. I am resting tonight as I type these words on a laptop. My back is supported by pillows, and a heating pad is slowing warming the muscles in my chest.
I would LOVE to have rest on every side. Rest from myself and my own anxious thoughts. The good news is that I do have rest if I am willing to do the one work that God requires: Trust Jesus.
So what happens when I do trust him but the anxious thoughts remain?
Just. Keep. Trusting.
Be dependent. Be joyful that He sees the obstacles in my path; I don’t have to worry about what lies ahead because he’s already got a way planned around!
