Rest in God Alone

Psalm 62:1: “My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him.”

When a friend of mine feels fatigued, she takes a bubble bath.

My brother and sister-in-law enjoy their Jacuzzi.

A massage relaxes my body. However, as the Scripture says, “My soul finds rest in God alone.” When I spend time in prayer, Bible study, praise, and worship, my soul finds rest that can only be found in God.

False prophets have always existed. They present lies as truth and cause people to turn from God.

However, their lies cannot change the truth. Our bodies may find rest in earthly things, but our souls cannot. Our souls find “rest in God alone.”

False prophets and cults teach that we can earn salvation by works or through someone else. The Bible clearly says that our salvation comes from God.

If a person wanted a Rolex watch, he wouldn’t purchase a Timex and insist it is the same quality. Likewise, I won’t settle for less than God’s rest and his salvation.

Dear God, my soul longs to find rest in you. Amen.
