Do you want to find true rest for your soul today? Not leisure, distraction or numbness – but actual, pure, peaceful – rest?
Then simply confess everything you know in you that is offensive to God and His word. Ask Him to help you “turn away” from it (That’s repentance). Next receive all the grace and forgiveness bought for you through the Cross, forgiving yourself for failing too.
Next, make a choice to be completely relaxed and settled in the presence of God; Him in you, and you in Him. Settle your heart in His love. Slow your thoughts down and focus them on the grace of Jesus. Simply “be” in the presence of God. Don’t think of the future – simply be present, now.
Can you sense a secret place of presence inside you now? A gentle stirring of God’s grace, mercy and quiet Communication? A sense of peace, of presence, of quiet awe?
I call this “The secret place of the Most High God”. Dwell there, day in, day out. Return to it if you forget, night or day. Practice that presence – and you will increasingly discover a life filled with the deep breath of heavens rest.
He who dwells in the secret place, will rest.
