“I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety” – Psalm 4:8 (NIV)
After reading through my bible and hearing Tom’s talk at Crossroads last night, I am convinced that the only was we can attain peace and security is in the presence of God. Do you feel anxious? Stressed? Restless? Draw close to God.
The psalms also say that men find refuge in the shadow of God’s wings. (36:7). I have this image of us walking with God along a path. Sometime we get distracted and start to lag behind. At other times we rush ahead, wanting to accomplish things faster or see what’s over the horizon. But when we do this, we leave God’s presence and the security of His shadow.
If you have these anxious feelings, take a moment to sit with God. Stay in His presence, blocking all of life’s distractions, and receive peace. Calm the stresses of your mind in the safety of His wings. Find rest in Him.
So who is setting the pace in your walk?
