Ours is a restless, rushed society. Life moves ever faster each year. We struggle to fit as much in as we can, and rarely pause for reflection. Perhaps the same is true of our spiritual lives. We can so easily feel that our walk with the Lord is just one extra thing to squeeze in to our crowded days and weeks.
In the Psalms, rather than the Lord being just another clamouring voice making demands on our time and energy, we discover that he is one who gives rest. David tells us to ‘Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him.’
These devotions are intended to help you do just that. They are all short, focussing on just a verse or two, with a break in the middle for reflection. So why not pause your busy day and spend some time with God, to rest in his presence, and delight in his smile upon you.
