Find Rest In Me Alone, Dear One
FIND REST IN ME ALONE, DEAR ONE; YOUR hope comes from Me. You have a restless mind. It skips and scampers about continually, rarely taking time to be still. Listen, and you will hear Me saying, “Come to Me.” I am the only resting place for your mind that will truly satisfy and strengthen you. Take time—make time—to direct your thoughts to Me. Whisper My Name and wait in My sacred Presence. You are on holy ground. This provides refreshment not only for your mind but also for your soul.
True hope comes from Me. False hope comes from many sources, including persuasive advertising. Ask Me to give you discernment as you seek to walk along a hopeful path. Many voices call out to you: “This is the way!” Do not be deceived; learn to be wise and alert when you're trying to process all the information shouting at you. Break free from information overload by refocusing your thoughts on Me. As you rest in My peaceful Presence, true hope grows within you.
Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, 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.”
Then Moses said, “I will turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.” So when the LORD saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Moses! Moses!” And [Moses] said, “Here I am.” Then [God] said, “Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.”
“I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”
