“Our hearts are restless until they find their rest in the Lord.”

March 3, 2019

We are an increasingly restless people, constantly busy and always working on various parts of our lives.  Humans have always naturally tried to work our way to strength, stability and security.  In Isaiah, we’ve seen the the LORD is the only rational place to put our trust and hope for the future.  But the people of Israel—and us today—turn instead to other ways of managing our fears and desires.  Nevertheless, God is faithful to continue to show mercy, and we see it in a climactic way in Jesus Christ.  When we turn to the LORD and see his faithfulness, we can find a deep rest for our souls that is available nowhere else.

Application Questions

  1. How do you experience tiredness and restlessness in your life?  How does it affect you?

  2. Where do you look to find rest and blessing in your life?  How have those things still left you restless?

  3. What would it look like for you to rest in the Lord?  How would your life change if you trusted the Lord exclusively?
