Be still and rest in the Lord; wait for Him and patiently lean yourself upon Him; fret not yourself because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked devices to pass – Psalm 37:7
Are you in a situation where you feel like the thing that is against you is just advancing and you don’t seem to find a way out? It might feel like you can do nothing about it. It might be a sickness or diseases which is incurable, or a financial problem which is just too big or some other circumstance which you feel like it is just going to overtake you and crush you under.
We all face such situations. When your soul is anchored in Christ no situation in life can break you. You will always emerge stronger and victorious. But it all depends on how you react to those situations, do you react in worry and anxiety and fret over it. If you do that you connect with fear which is not from God and it will defeat you. As a child of God, He wants you to be still and rest in Him. Rest in the assurance that He has everything under control. Lean on Him and let Him speak to your heart about the situation and how to handle it. Sometimes He will guide you through the situation to victory by revealing certain things in the Scripture, other times He will just say, leave this to me, I will take care of it. You just Rest in Me and Rejoice. Either way He is going to help you to overcome victoriously (Psalm 37:5).
Resting in Him and Leaning on Him in Trust – Make that a lifestyle. Dwell in that Rest, not just visit there occasionally. Do not wait for storm to come and then you seek Him and get close with Him, but walk with Him closely all the time even when everything is going good. Abide in His Word and let His Spirit abide in you all the time.
When the devil throws a sickness or other problems it will not disturb you, because you have confident assurance in Him and you Rest in Him. You know you are more than a conqueror in Him. Jesus said, “In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (Matthew 16:33).
We are world overcomers in Him.
So Relax and Rest in Him and let Him lead you to Victory!
