The Foundation of Rest

A few days ago I was stopped by Psalm 92:2.  We are exhorted to declare God’s lovingkindness and faithfulness in the morning and night respectively.  Thinking through this I wondered at the timing.
The Foundation of Rest
It occurs to me that we need His lovingkindness in the morning.  Why?  We all encounter many different trials throughout the day.  We need to know that the Lord’s lovingkindness surrounds us in all that we encounter.  These things come upon us for a reason, a purpose, and His lovingkindness will sustain us through them.

In the evening when we sleep we are most vulnerable.  Remember the old nursery prayer, “Now I lay me down to sleep…”  That prayer acknowledged our vulnerability and our reliance on God’s faithfulness.  We can trust Him.  He does not change.  In our most vulnerable state, we are covered by His faithfulness.

The coupling of those two characteristics of our Lord lays a solid foundation for trust, rest in Him.
