Speaker: Lukus Counterman - C.H. Spurgeon wrote, “Ours is not a life of anxious care but of happy faith.” This is because our Father knows what we need and wants to care for us. We can trust him. We can rest in him. We don’t have to sit up late plotting and planning, contriving and constructing the intricacies of our lives. We have no need to lie awake with fear gnawing at our hearts. We can rely on God and receive the rest he gives to those he loves (Psalm 127:2). Let us stop our ceaseless tossing to and fro in worry and futile striving. Let us lay aside vain labors, and turn to the one who loves us deeply and provides for us fully. Let us trust in the Lord with our whole heart and stop leaning on our own understanding. Let the words of Jesus that stilled the storm, calm the flurry of our hearts. As we include God in every area of life, may we know what it means to have peace and to be still.
