Trust and rest

Sometimes we look around the world and we feel like we should worry about the future. We hear news that is disturbing from the media or about people we love. We can rest in the truth of God’s word. He is working on our behalf. He is working everything-every situation, every tiny detail of our lives, every decision, every action, every event relating to us – he is working it out for our good. He is powerful enough and cares enough for us to handle the situation. He has a master plan for our future, one that will not be denied or derailed. Why? Because he is actively working on our behalf. And he is actively at work in us. God’s power is at work in us. Look at the references below:

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. – Ephesians 3:20-21

for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure. – Philippians 2:13

“He will not let you be defeated. He who guards you never sleeps.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭121:3‬ ‭ICB‬‬

Rest, knowing God works for our good, in us, and his power is at work in us. Rest in God’s love, trust in God’s word.
