“God is our refuge and strength, a helper who is always found in times of trouble. Therefore we will not be afraid, though the earth trembles and the mountains topple into the depths of the seas, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with its turmoil. Selah”
Psalms 46:1-3 HCSB
What does it look like when you trust God with your worries? For me, it is messy and hard, even when I try to make it look neat and pretty and wrapped in a bow as if I was giving Him a gift. I tearfully warble my concerns before Him in my heartfelt prayers, and then I rest… for a while. But when my requests are not immediately answered with a resounding, “yes,” I take back my worries and nurse them some more, building up a frenzy of anxiety within me. Until I find myself back at the foot of the cross once more.
That’s not such a bad place to be, now is it? Sure, I’d rather rest continually, and God is showing me over time and from one trial to the next that if I stay at the cross, instead of going back and forth, I can find that rest all of the time. That’s what He means when He talks about remaining in Him. Perhaps it’s about staying in an attitude of prayer all the time so that I can have His peace with me always.
