Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
Psalm 116:7 (KJV)
We are at rest when we are confident that God is handling everything that concerns us. We rest in our confidence that God has already made available what we need, and out of this assurance will we see His goodness showing up in our lives. God works when we are at a place of peace.
And the grace (unmerited favor and blessing) of our Lord [actually] flowed out superabundantly and beyond measure for me, accompanied by faith and love that are [to be realized] in Christ Jesus.
1 Timothy 1:14 (AMPC)
When we receive a revelation of God’s grace as His unmerited favor and blessing, our faith increases as we come to recognize and embrace His love for us. Rather than performing to try to get God to bless us, we find ourselves resting in His love and in His finished works. And out from this place we move ever more fully towards the manifestation of His promises.
