Ruth | Lesson 4 | Rest

Rest. We think of it as mindless. Something to do when everything else is done. But rest (that position of vulnerable trust in another to do the working) is foundational in our relationship with the God who has, thus far, proven Himself so trustworthy.

Sometimes we fall at Jesus’ feet—something knocks us over, and we land there before we have a chance to consider our options. But what we’re looking at here is a very intentional surrender, a careful and deliberate lying down. We decide that we can trust this great big God. Relief finds our Lord faithful and lies down to rest.
