Jesus tells us to “Rest in Him”. I am such a planner and organizer…Can I rest…can I give my mind a break and stop anticipating what will happen? I am often trying to peer into the future and plan for every possibility.
When I do that, it seems I am ignoring the One who is constantly with me. When I am looking anxiously ahead, I am taking my focus off Him and trying to accomplish things in my own strength. I simply forget who is holding my hand…I forget Who sustains me.Praying continually and asking His Spirit to take charge of the details of my day gives me a much more peaceful day. It may still be filled with plans that I have to make, but when I do not lose sight of the Lord’s Presence with me….I can safely “Rest in Him” all day!
