But each day the Lord pours his unfailing love upon me, and through each night I sing his songs, praying to God who gives me life.
—Psalm 42:8 (NLT)
His Words speak hope to your soul. His voice quietens your mind. Jesus not only knows the cry of your heart. He has already provided the answer for it. Each day He showers you with His unfailing love. Jesus promises you peace springing from greater faith. When you trust and believe, you receive.
How do you rest in Him? Let go of doing. Let go of fixing. Let go of your agenda. Let go of analyzing and asking why. Just “be” in Him. Be still. Quit planning your next effort. Listen. The Holy Spirit always speaks, but doing and fixing and planning, keep you from hearing Him.
When you let go in Jesus, He renews your strength. You know He is God. He guides and empowers. He does. He fixes. He plans. The Holy Spirit is the wind that carries and sustains you. His wind is constant, never wavering or faltering. Jesus empowers what He births in you. Without Him, you will know stress and stumble in any attempt. He created you to rise on the wind like an eagle. The strength He supplies is your heartbeat, and you cannot soar without it.
Praise Him always in good and hard times. Through each dark night, sing praises to the Lord, who gave you His very life. Pray, believing that you will receive. When fear suddenly closes around your heart, cease from your racing thoughts. Rest in the Lord until His peace claims you, and His strength becomes your own. Never do anything without Him. Let your time of rest be one where the Spirit renews your mind. You shall experience His consistent peace and His constant strength to carry you. When you accept that without Him you can do nothing, you surrender to His power.
You want to be free of the constant stress and fear of not pleasing Him? Quit trying to do what you think needs to take place. Let the Holy Spirit guide and empower you. Just let Him.
