right where He wants us…

Rest in Me…
in all things…
at all times…

This is what He calls us to do…

For thus the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, has said,
“In repentance and rest you will be saved,
In quietness and trust is your strength.”
Isaiah 30:15 NASB
(emphasis mine)

rest… Hebrew… nachath

Our root signifies not only absence of movement but being settled in a particular place (whether concrete or abstract) with overtones of finality, or (when speaking abstractly) of victory, salvation, etc.

—Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament (emphasis added)

To rest in Him… is to be settled… in… Him…
His promises
His call
His purpose

In this place… our emotions do not define us…
He does…

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature;
the old things passed away; behold,
new things have come.
2Corinthians 5:17

Rest… in… Him…
