In the rest King David brings to God’s people we see glimpses of a priest king like Adam in Eden, enjoying rest in God’s presence and reviving God’s ancient promises to Abraham.
We all long for rest. Israel momentarily experiences this rest and rejoicing, but we can only experience lasting satisfaction of this longing through Jesus.
Hands Statement:FIRST Steps: Stop seeking joy and rest in distractions, temporary things, and false gods.
Practicing true rest is letting God be God. Stop trying to sign God up to build and bless your kingdom. Rest in Jesus by enjoying God’s presence, on his terms.
