We enjoy deep, God-honoring contentment and soul-satisfaction, as we learn to rest in God's presence.

Yahweh alone is the source of divine rest.

Resting in Yahweh's presence is active, not passive. 

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
    He restores my soul.

Psalm 23:1-3a


What's your default setting in your pursuit of soul-satisfaction? Are you looking to Yahweh or something less?

What good but non-ultimate things are you chasing for contentment? How do you tend to strive after those things instead of the Ultimate One who alone can meet the deep longings of your heart?

As we enter a new season together, how will your pursue God's presence above all else?

  • Do you need to being or restart a regular quiet time?
  • What rhythms or routines do you need to stop or start to practice and thereby rest in God's presence throughout each day?
