God Speaks - Rest

Press play to listen to the audio version of this article.

Look to the hills, to the high plains and the great mountains. Will your help come from the heights? Strain your eyes to the heavens, will direction be found in the stars? Perhaps the deep of the ocean will offer the answers you seek. Maybe the expanse of human wisdom will give you the strength you crave. Yet no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has perceived and no heart has considered the things which I have prepared for you because you love me. I am God and you are not. My ways are not your ways. My thoughts are not your thoughts. You seek me, but you cannot find me because you seek me where I cannot be found. Humble yourself before me and I will lift you up. I will show you where to look. Draw near to me and I will draw near to you and show you great and mighty things. In me you live fully alive. I am your source. The one true God. I do not change. Seek me. Look to me. Learn from me. I am gentle and humble in heart. Come to me and find rest for your soul.

I look up to the mountains – does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!

Psalm 121:1-2

Ask God

Where am I looking for help?


Let me always seek you first and your Kingdom of Heaven ways.
