The fear of the Lord leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble. Proverbs 19:23. When we walk by faith in the reality of who God is, trusting wholly in Him and not leaning on our own understanding, he makes our paths straight and level and we are able to rest, contendly, in Him, untouched by the troubles and trials of this world. Note that it doesn’t say that there aren’t troubles; it simply says that we won’t be touched by trouble. Why? Because we live knowing that He is God. He is infinite. He is love. He is all powerful. He is all knowing. He is sovereign. He always keeps his promises. His purpose always prevails (Proverbs 19:21). We can truly rest in Him. If you feel unrest, then perhaps it is something or someone else you are placing your trust in. May the reality of who HE is wash over you as you begin to breathe deeply and taste and see that He is good and rest peacefully in His tender care. Amen.
