Bible Ballistics: BBs #715   Give It A Rest!  Yes YOU!!!


I truly have a simple and brief word for us this morning: take a breath, look up and rest in The Lord!  For only by resting in HIM do we find our strength.

Finally, my brethren, be strong

in the Lord,

and in the power

of his might.”  Ephesians 6:10

As the Psalmist put so aptly:

In God is my salvation

and my glory:

the rock of my strength,

and my refuge,

is in God.

8 Trust in him at all times; ye people,

pour out your heart before him:

God is a refuge

for us. Selah.”  Psalm 62:7-8

As the stresses of life often leave us dry, drained, and down-hearted, we need only lift up our eyes to the ONE who is our hope, our sustenance and our safe place. May we all take the advice of another of my favorite Psalms today, and just rest “in The Lord”!  I’m so grateful that HE is always there!

Trust in the LORD,

and do good;

so shalt thou dwell in the land,

and verily thou shalt be fed.

4 Delight thyself also in the LORD;

and he shall give thee

the desires of thine heart.

5 Commit thy way unto the LORD;

trust also in him;

and he shall bring it to pass.

6 And he shall bring forth

thy righteousness

as the light,

and thy judgment

as the noonday.

7 Rest in the LORD,

and wait patiently for him:

fret not thyself because of him

who prospereth in his way,

because of the man

who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

8 Cease from anger,

and forsake wrath:

fret not thyself in any wise

to do evil.”  Psalm 37:3-8

We can rest in Jesus when we keep our eyes on HIM—pressing ever onward in HIS power, strength and grace.

Brethren, I count not myself

to have apprehended:

but this one thing I do,

forgetting those things

which are behind,

and reaching forth unto those things

which are before,

14 I press toward the mark

for the prize

of the high calling of God

 in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 3:13-14

Press on by resting IN JESUS!  Blessings on your day my friends!

Amen and Amen!
