Find Rest in God

By: 
Chris Dool

Throughout history many people have practiced the discipline of meditation.

 

It is peaceful rest that quiets the mind while reflecting upon God and His word. Augustine wrote in "Confessions" (his deeply philosophical and theological autobiography) "Our hearts are restless until they find their rest in thee".

 

David was a great example of someone who found his rest in God by meditation. Even with the countless pressures he endured as king: economic, judicial, social, war, enemies, and havoc in his own family, he still found time to meditate on God's glory.

 

Though under extreme turmoil and enormous stress in his own life, David found his rest in the Lord. He says it best in Psalm 62:1, "My soul waits in silence for God only; from Him is my salvation." Let us find our rest in God who gives peace to those who seek Him.
