Finding True Rest in God

Finding True Rest in God


Psalm 62:1 (NIV)

Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from Him.

In the whirlwind of daily responsibilities, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and weary. The demands of work, family, and personal commitments can drain our energy and peace, leaving us longing for true rest. Psalm 62:1 offers a profound reminder that our souls find genuine rest in God alone, for He is the source of our salvation and peace.

The psalmist declares that true rest is found in God. This rest is not just physical but a deep, soul-satisfying peace that only God can provide. When we trust in God and seek Him earnestly, we experience a peace that transcends our circumstances. He invites us to lay our burdens at His feet, to pause in His presence, and to find renewal in His unfailing love and salvation.

For women juggling countless responsibilities, this promise is a beacon of hope. God offers us a sanctuary where we can rest from our labors and anxieties. By turning to Him, we acknowledge that our strength comes from His presence and that our salvation is secured by His grace. In this sacred space, we are reminded of our worth, not because of what we do, but because of who we are in Him.

Take moments throughout your day to pause, breathe, and refocus your mind on God. Use these pauses to remind yourself of His presence and His promise of rest.


Reflect on the areas of your life where you feel most burdened and weary. Are you seeking rest in temporary solutions, or are you turning to God for the true rest your soul needs?

How does acknowledging God as your source of salvation and rest change your perspective on finding peace?
