If you practice rest, you will feel the touch of God so much more. If you practice rest, you will hear His voice physically. If you practice rest, you will feel His breath. You will feel His hand as a physical thing because He is very tangible. He understands all relationships have to be tangible at some point. They have to touch. They have to connect, and that is a physical thing. It is an emotional thing. If you practice rest you, will feel the presence of God so much more strongly in your own life.
Rest is something that we receive, so we must be willing to allow rest to displace the opposite. I think that is where we partner with God. You can’t trust the Lord and be anxious, because those two things are incompatible. They can’t exist in the same space at the same time; one of them has to go, and you get to choose.
