Who doesn't love the weekend? Despite having a busy week, the weekend affords us the opportunity to rest. If you like football, you have the opportunity to put your feet up, relax, and watch a good game. Perhaps reading is your preference. You get the opportunity to relax with a good book for a day or two. Whatever you like to do, the weekend gives us the chance to rest.
Of course, there are different kinds of rest. There is a spiritual rest that we all look for. This kind of rest is available to us at any time . . . no need to wait for the weekend! This is the kind of rest that David describes here in Psalm 62:1 - a spiritual rest. Despite his difficulties and challenges David was able to find rest in God and His promises.
We have the opportunity today to find spiritual rest. Like David, we find spiritual rest only in the promises of God. Maybe you didn't get enough physical rest this past weekend and you need a little more. Take confidence in knowing that you can find true and fulfilling spiritual rest in God alone today!
