Have you ever thought of making up your own songs and singing them to our Lord like you did when you were a small child. It doesn’t have to be any good, because our proud Heavenly Father is going to love them. It will bring you much closer to God and often God will give you new revelations about Him, if it is done in a childlike faith and love. When we try out new ways of loving Him, we get rewarded by God. God often will heal the heart and give you a sense of freedom, joy and closeness to Him. When we learn to rest in His love, we are then free of worrying; worrying about the present and the future.
I had difficulty in understanding what it meant to rest in the Lord once. But after a lot of searching and praying I realised when we rest in the Lord, we are simply leaning on Him with trust and faith. Just like a small child leans on His father for protection and love. When we let go of all our worries and just turn to God for help, knowing He is strong enough and wise enough to look after us in every detail. Then we can rest, because we are handing over the reins of control to God. All we have to do is believe, trust and obey and then God will do the rest.
Childlike trust how liberating is that? You can never trust God enough. The more we do it the more we will see His powerful hand working for us. God is good and just so we know He is capable of doing the miraculous in our lives. We don’t have to worry about anything, but pray and do what is before us to do and then wait on Him. So much responsibility is taken off our shoulders when we gladly do His Will and not ours. When we now no longer strive to be in control, gives us rest and peace in the Lord.
Isaiah 26:4. Trust in the Lord forever, for in the Lord is everlasting strength.
Proverbs 29:25. The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe.
