“REST IN HIS LOVE AND PEACE ALWAYS”

Rest in His Love and Peace always. Dear God is always there for you so go to Him and find that Shelter you look for. Let’s go to:

Psalms 4:8 “I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.”

Here lay (Strong’s 7901) to lie down, sleep, be still, to be completed, or take rest, peace (Strong’s 7999) to be safe (in mind, body or state), sleep (Strong’s 3462) to remain long or make to sleep, makest (Strong’s 6213) to do or make, accomplish, maintain, provide or prepare, dwell (Strong’s 3427) to sit down, dwell, remain, continue or return and safety (Strong’s 982) to go quickly or run for refuge, to be bold, confident, sure, hope, trust or serve. So rest and be completed and at peace in your mind, body and sould in dear God by staying close to Him in prayer and in His Word. Only He is that One that you can run to safety and be confident and sure in yourself that everything will be just fine and that you do have the victory in Him. He is that One through His Son that fought and conquered Death so let His Love cover you and keep close to Him.

Stay in the Word by reading each day and studying a little bit deeper so you can get to know Him better. Who better than to go to but the Source of Truth Himself, but dear God. When it is your time for judgment, there will be no one but you and He and His Son if you choose to receive all that is coming to you both in negative and positive. What a great day you have to look forward to, but you have right now to share His Love and Truth and can enjoy His Love and blessings if you take refuge in Him.

Talk with Him deeply and intimately about all that is going on with you. Make some time for Him since He always takes out time for you when you ask for it. Show Him the courtesy, love and respect that you want to receive back from those you love. He is your closest Family, after all. So enjoy Him and talk with Him.

Finally, rest in His Love and Peace always and keep close to Him. Even if your life is filled with daily routine things that get hectic, make time for Him and He will bless you so you are not so overwhelmed. It is up to you to make the effort and it is your responsibility so you can enjoy freedom in Him in peace of mind and stability. He loves you so much so let Him know you care, too. He is so happy you are with Him and really cares.

Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Truth,

Mindy

Stay, talk and rest. Excellent points! The preacher in my wants to change them to stay, say and lay" or maybe or maybe stay, pray and lay.

Thanks for your insights!
