Insomnia and anxiety have plagued me this month. So on Monday, I had to laugh when I opened up my Anne Graham Lotz Bible study to discover that this week’s lesson was titled “Well Rested.” God really does have excellent timing, doesn’t He?
Rest refuels us and allows us to be at peace in our hearts and minds. Have you ever been bone tired and yet unable to sleep? Have anxious thoughts troubled your soul? This week, I have cried out daily for God to be my refuge, a shield from the attack. As I was digging “Into the Word” , I discovered a gem — a verse that encouraged my weary heart:
“Thus says the Lord,
the people who survived the sword
found grace in the wilderness.
Israel, when I went to give them rest.”
Jeremiah 31:2, NKJV
Are you in the wilderness right now? God longs to meet you there and give you grace. Fear not the sword. Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. Your rest is coming.
Q4U: How has God met you with grace in the wilderness?
