The awareness of who God is, is the foundation of our faith. Look around you. People are emotionally and physically drained by the pressures of life. We are plagued by uncertainties, doubts, and unexpected life surprises. No matter how hard we try, sometimes we are really stressed and burned out from worry. Remember, God is active at work in us. Activate faith. You don’t have to carry your burdens alone. We enter this REST when we respond to His word and His voice with faith and obedience. He is the Lord of REST! He who knows every need will guide you to a place of REST and peace. REST in His word!
