“Now I can say to myself and to all, ‘Relax and rest, be confident and serene, for the Lord rewards fully those who simply trust in him.’” (Psalms 116:7, the Passion Translation)
Trusting may seem difficult. We may find our fears and doubts seem too strong and overwhelming.
But to trust God is to relieve those fears and doubts. It is what gives us rest. This surrender to God—letting go of the analyzing and judging, predicting and limiting—is what we are made to do. It isn’t a stretch to release to a higher power and greater wisdom. It is that childlike response that is natural.
And this gives us confidence. We are giving up a reliance on the weak and the uncertain, and instead we are leaning into and upon the all-power, that which is infinite Life, goodness, and Love. And this is a rich reward. It is true peace. It takes away anxiety and allows us to relax. It gives us the openness to see new promises unfold.
God’s purpose is loving. His wisdom is perfect. Let’s yield to that inner desire to relax and rely, to simply trust God and let Him show us all the good He has for us today.
