Applied Rest

Ever get anxious?  Ever confused about what is going on in your life?
How do we cope when things are rotten?  Thoughts at DTTB.
Reading today Psalm 44:2 got my attention.  The nation of Israel took the land – well that was one side of the story.  The sons of Korah tell us it was really the Lord that did that.  He is the one who took the land and planted Israel in it.  But He wasn't done.  He then afflicted them and scattered them abroad.

God is purposeful.  If I were a member of Israel at the time I would have been anxious about the affliction and scattering.  But by doing that God spread the knowledge of Himself throughout the world.  Purpose.  His Purpose.

There is purpose in what the Lord brings into our lives.  We can trust Him with those.  We can rest in His finished work, we can rest, relax and know that He knows what He is doing with us.

I need that reminder, pretty much daily.
