Thought of the day 4-17-15

Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. (Psalms 37:7 KJV)

One who is at rest in God is not easily excited by outward stresses. His inner strength is what allays his anxieties and troubles of mind. To each hurricane there is an eye. At the circumference the wind whirls violently, but the eye, deep at the center, is most calm.

The Lord Jesus was never put off balance by outside influences. Even at the last, when a band of soldiers came to seize Him with torches and weapons, He stepped forward and asked them whom they were seeking. Being told that they sought Jesus of Nazareth, He calmly answered, “I am He.” Met by Him, they retreated and fell on the ground. Those who would seize Him were terrified of the One to be seized, whereas the external stresses had no power to move Him.
At the center of His being, the eye of the storm, He was at rest with God.
