Rest in the Lord; Waiting Patiently for Him

Rest in the Lord; Waiting Patiently for Him : While resting in the Lord is surely accurate. another way to understand this healing scripture would be to “be silent in the Lord”  or, in other words, leaving the whole matter to God without being anxious about the results.

Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him; fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. ~ Psalm 37:7

As for the deliverance from our suffering, we are here prescribed to wait patiently upon the Lord. While He may seem to delay, or not intervene according to our will, we are still told to wait patiently; resting fully assured in God’s will being done on earth as it is in heaven.

In other words, we can have full confidence, that God’s will be done; but as to the sooner or later part, we leave that to Him. Unlike the temporary nature of that insurance company’s claim, we the faithful know for sure that with God we are always in “good hands.”
