How do you rest when you are being battered by violent waves in a killer storm? We all go through storms. Maybe you are going through one right now. This 62nd Psalm has been sung by untold millions of storm-tossed believers in the 3,000 years since it was first penned. You may be battered and bruised as you ride the waves of your storm, battling with every ounce of energy to stay afloat—but you can still experience rest in your soul. David said it twice: “…my soul finds rest in God…” If I could reduce the 62nd Psalm to a single verse, it would be this—our fifth principle in our Sabbath series: Don't tell God how big your storm is; tell the storm how big your God is.
Our series, entitled Sabbath, must deal with the heaviest of all burdens: religion. The gods of your imagination are unspeakably cruel. But the loving God of the Bible has come down from his mountain of holiness to give you rest from the burdens of religion. Here's the third Sabbath principle in our series: When it comes to the Sabbath, the rest is up to you.
There's a provocative question in a book called The Cure: Is it better to please God or trust him? When you read the Bible, the answer is so obvious. It's the second principle of our new series, Sabbath: The Rest is Up to You: God wants us to trust him more than he wants us to please him.
In Matthew 11:28-30, Jesus is calling all of us who are weary--who are wearing a yoke attached to a heavy burden that we are straining to pull. This is the first principle of our new sermon series entitled Sabbath: The Rest Is Up To You: The yoke you wear determines the burden you bear.
