My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest. Exodus 33:14
Rest can be described as the peace that flows into our lives, irrespective of the seasons that we are in. God tells us in this verse that His presence will give us the much required peace and calmness that we need today.
Amidst the turmoil around and the circumstances that we go through, it is only His presence that can give us the peace within us. His presence in our lives adds a whole new dimension, meaning and purpose to us. His presence restores and refreshes us. His presence renews our strength. His presence protects and blesses us.
However we need to desire for His presence and place our trust in Him to enjoy the rest or peace that God has promised us.
When we trust in the Lord during our difficult times, His presence will flow into our lives and give us peace. The Bible says in Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.”
Mathew 11:28, says “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
Friends, trust in the Lord and continue to belong to Him. He will satisfy us with good things, make our ways straight and bless us with perfect peace during our journey.
