“Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on His law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers.”
We can find peace in knowing God’s words of truth can and will sustain us. We are blessed and refreshed when we delight in Him. Take a moment to clear your mind of the day and focus on God by remembering who He is—the all-powerful One who knows, sees, and dearly loves you. He knows the weight of your burdens and is ready to lift them and give you rest for your mind, body, and soul.
Bring today’s worries and anxieties to Him and know He cares for you and each challenge you face. Focus on His promises for you and His goodness. Keep your mind and heart still and silent to hear His voice. Ask for Him to speak to you through His Word. Believe and do not doubt that His voice will lead you to a safe, quiet place where you can surrender to Him.
Let yourself bask in God’s presence; feel His peace wash over you. Imagine being firmly rooted in His love, grace, and truth and quenching your thirst in His springs of eternal life. Know God can sustain you where you are. Praise Him for always keeping His promises and for being your firm foundation.
Father, I thank You for Your promise to watch over me tonight. Help me surrender all this day’s cares to You so I can be still and rest in Your care. I take delight in Your Word and meditate on it now so that my faith will grow, and I can trust in You for everything.
