A Prayer of Moses, the man of God. Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations. (Psalms 90:1)
There is so much chaos in the world today. I admit that there are times I would like to “steal away” to some otherworld, to escape the noise of life. Well, there is no otherworld, but there is a place.
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.” (Matthew 11:28-29)
What peace to know that the Lord is our resting place – today, tomorrow, and always. With Jesus we have a place of rest for our weary soul. He is our Shelter, a place where we can rest in safety from the evil that surrounds us. He is our Light, a place to come when we’re confused and need truth. He is our Comforter, a dwelling place where we will find comfort for our body and our spirit.
“Thank You Jesus that in this day of uncertainty You have provided for us an escape from the things of this world – a dwelling place, a resting place. May we turn to You to find rest for our souls.”
