Child, I shall teach you to REST in Me. Strive not. Be at peace. Receive from the Great I AM for all your needs. I cherish you. I shall teach you more. Rest in Me. SELAH
My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. (NIV)
Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. (NIV)
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. (NIV)
'The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,' says the LORD Almighty. 'And in this place I will grant peace,' declares the LORD Almighty." (NIV)
Prayer: I am so glad, dear Jesus, that you are going to teach me to rest in You. It seems I am forever retaking this "final" exam. I do desire to receive from You even though sometimes I wiggle too much. Help me to be still? AMEN.
