Rest!

Re:Verse reading–Psalm 2, Psalm 110 (day six)
“The Lord says to my Lord: ‘Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.’ ” (110:1)  Sometimes the best thing to do is wait.  To rest.  Sometimes the instruction from God is to sit and let Him do the work.  “The Lord will fight for you while you keep silent” was the promise that Moses received in Exodus 14:14.  It isn’t always the case.  Until Christ had completed His assignment (the cross) sitting would have been disobedience.  After the cross, further effort would have been disbelief.  Sometimes the Spirit of God whispers to us, “Wait! Rest! Trust!  I will do the work now!”  May God give us the grace to recognize when this moment comes for us.  Sometimes our assignment is to obey and then to leave it in God’s hands.  “Wait on the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait on the Lord.”  Psalms 27:14.
