Kick back and rest

Isaiah 66:1-2 (ESV)
1 Thus says the Lord:
“Heaven is my throne,
    and the earth is my footstool;
what is the house that you would build for me,
    and what is the place of my rest?
2 All these things my hand has made,
    and so all these things came to be,
declares the Lord.
But this is the one to whom I will look:
    he who is humble and contrite in spirit
    and trembles at my word.

In our house we have a recliner that has one of those built-in foot rest operated by a lever on the side. It's my captain chair. It's so comfortable that oftentimes I will kick up the foot-rest, and within minutes, fall asleep.

The scripture says God's captain chair, His throne, is in heaven... and his footstool is right here on earth! This planet is God's footstool. That means everything – the mountains, the rivers, oceans, your home, under His feet...but, more than that, your problems, your worries, your fears – they are all under His feet as well!

So stop worrying and relax – give those problems over to God, kick up your feet, and rest in Him, realizing that every issue you're dealing with is also truly under His feet, and that He never slumbers or sleeps!

Dear Lord, we thank You that You have all our problems under control and we can just kick back and rest in that fact. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
