To Rest in GOD

We are told to Trust God for everything ,but what does that really mean? When my wife and I are doing God’s work and all seems fine we are often attacked by the enemy in different forms. During these time we react as best we can and Trust in God that he will help us in our time of need. For me sometimes I feel that he is not as close as usual and that is ok because i know that he will never leave me with something I can not handle. I know that God will lead the enemy away by using my brothers and sisters as a distraction and drawing his attention to someplace else so that We can continue God’s work. It is during these times that I sometimes wonder and in the past would feel abandoned but I know better than to feel that God will ever go away. Isaiah 40:28-31 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

God says that he will never leave us with more than we can handle so if times seem hard or like we are alone we must remember that whatever the situation is that we do have the strength to carry on we just have to remember to keep are faith and believe in ourselves as God believes in us and that we are strong enough for everything we are going through. When we feel alone while we follow God it is a time to rest and reflect on what we are doing that is causing the enemy to attack because if we are being attacked than we are doing things right. Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

When we are no threat to the enemy then he does not bother with us. The more personal the attack from the enemy the stronger we become. So during those times when it seems things are falling apart or are going in the wrong direction then that is when God wants us to have a Rest in him and regain more strength and wisdom for our next mission. I think about it like this, ” How can I feel God in me when I am Resting in Him”. Psalm 118:8 It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.
