Here is the thing: If you practice rest, you will feel the touch of God so much more.

Standard

Rest is physical. Rest is emotional. Rest is mental and spiritual. It is the tangible expression of God’s presence: Rest.
In Exodus 13:14 God’s promise to Moses was, My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.
We are not a people looking for the presence of God; we already have it. He is inside us. You can’t get any more Presence than that: Inside you. Anything that happens externally is a fabulous bonus, but you don’t actually need it. Who doesn’t want the physical, tangible touch of God on their life? Here is the thing: If you practice rest, you will feel the touch of God so much more.
(from The Practice of Rest)
