Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him.
Rest!! How much a man yearns to be at rest! It is what they strive in their whole lifetime. Man is in search for the inner peace and rest all his lifetime. Little does he realize that all his endeavors and efforts are just a waste of time. He can find rest and peace only in God.
Resting in God is a beautiful thing. It shows the end of all our seeking, pursuits. It shows our complete trust in Him. To rest means also to linger upon. So resting in God can be said as lingering upon God. We get the peace and inner rest when we think about God, meditate on His words and keep praising Him.
King James version says, 'Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.'
Waiting upon God is another wonderful dimension to rest. It is like waiting for God to do something in our lives. Have you noticed when a child asks his/her parent for something and they don't respond? They keep circling them and constantly looking up at their face waiting for them to answer them. It is like that with us. Waiting on God, looking unto Him, seeking His face for an answer.
He wants us to be like that child seeking Him at all times. From Him comes the salvation, the deliverance, the answer to all our turmoils. He will save from any and every situation. So fear not oh my soul!! Jesus is my Savior!!
