July 1

“Return to your rest, my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.”  Psalm 116:7 (NIV)

We need to be reminded often of the goodness and love of our God. Here the psalmist is talking to himself reminding himself of God’s goodness. I’m impressed by the fact that it was a reminder of something he had known before. He tells himself to be at rest once more. He had experienced a spiritual relaxation, a spiritual peace before, maybe many times. Now something had disturbed his thinking and he needed to be reminded again of God’s goodness. Don’t we have experiences like that too? Even though you have trusted in the Lord before, something comes up and you are disturbed. Then you need to remind yourself of the truth you have already known.
