The Rest of Victory

"Be still and know that I am God."
Psalm 46:10

There is nothing...
no circumstance, no trouble, no testing...
that can ever touch me
until, first of all, it has gone past God
and past Christ right through to me.
If it has come that far,
it has come with a great purpose,
which I may not understand at the moment.
But as I refuse to become panicky,
as I lift up my eyes to Him and accept it
as coming from the throne of God
for some great purpose of blessing
to my own heart,
no sorrow will ever disturb me,
no circumstances will cause me to fret,
for I shall rest in the joy of what my Lord is...
that is the rest of victory!
