Relax Cast Rest

June 9 2024

Book: Psalms

Bible Passage: Psalms 116:7

Its a season, not a sentence.
Relax, cast, rest
Détendez-vous, jetez, reposezvous
Relax: “Return to your rest, O my
soul, for the Lord has dealt
bountifully with you” (Psalm
Cast: “Therefore humble
yourselves under the mighty
hand of God, that He may exalt
you in due time, casting all your
care upon Him, for He cares for
you” (1 Peter 5:6–7).
Rest: “My soul, wait silently for
God alone, for my expectation is
from Him” (Psalm 62:5). “The fear
of the Lord leads to life; then one
rests content, untouched by
trouble” (Proverbs 19:23 niv).
Those three words, relax, cast
and rest, describe productive
actions you can take when life
goes sideways.
Relax—God is working things out
for your good in spite of what
you see happening around you.
Cast—Like casting a fishing line
far from the bank, God wants you
to cast your troubles far from the
bank of your soul.
Rest—Contented resting,
untouched by trouble, is available
for you in the midst of the
unbearable times.
