To rest in God is to let go for a moment of believing that change can only come from DOING something.
We enter into God's rest.
We spend time in that place where everything is ALREADY DONE.
We relax.

I rest in God.

Here is more of the lesson from A Course In Miracles on resting in God:

“‘I rest in God.’

This thought will bring to you the rest and quiet, peace and stillness, and the safety and the happiness you seek.

‘I rest in God.’
This thought has power to wake the sleeping truth in you, whose vision sees beyond appearances to that same truth in everyone and everything there is....

‘I rest in God.’
Completely undismayed, this thought will carry you through storms and strife,
past misery and pain,
past loss and death,
and onward to the certainty of God.
There is no suffering it cannot heal.
There is no problem that it cannot solve.
And no appearance but will turn to truth before the eyes of you who rest in God.

This is the day of peace.
You rest in God, and while the world is torn by winds of hate your rest remains completely undisturbed.
Yours is the rest of truth.
Appearances cannot intrude on you.”

(W-109, A Course In Miracles quotes)

Wow! Reading this spiritual quote about rest allows me to breathe more deeply.

I am setting an intention to remember this quote next time I feel upset about something!

I rest in God.

Even when my circumstances tell me I have every reason to be upset...

I rest in God.

Even when my feelings are anything but calm...

I rest in God.

Even if I am using the quote as an excuse to tell myself I should feel more restful!....

I rest in God.

I plant a seed of restfulness, and choose to believe that it will bear fruit :-)

I rest in God.

Another from among the beautiful spiritual quotes about rest in A Course In Miracles:

“In Him you have no cares and no concerns,
no burdens,
no anxiety,
no pain,

and no past regrets.
In timelessness you rest, while time goes by without its touch upon you,
for your rest can never change in any way at all.
You rest today.” (W-109)

Spiritual quotes about rest from the Bible

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
(Matthew 11:28-30, KJV Bible spiritual quote about rest)

I feel I am always working.
I feel weighed down by the cares of life.
Let me look to you for rest.
I take on your ways.
I let you teach me.
In you I find rest.
In this moment of doing it your way I feel a sense of peace.
I feel your Light shining in me now.
Thank you.

“For he that is entered into his rest,
he also hath ceased from his own works,
as God did from his.
Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest.”
(Hebrews 4:10-11, KJV esword

I enter now into Your rest,
If only for this moment,
I cease from my own works.
To assign value to being HERE and NOW with you is the fruit of my works.
To be HERE and NOW with you is the fruit of my works.
Your works are enough.
I rest now.

“And He said, “My presence shall go with thee,
and I will give thee rest.””
(Exodus 33:14, KJV Bible spiritual quote about rest)

I become aware of Your presence.
I rest in You.


“Thus says the LORD:
Stand by the roads, and look,
and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is;
and walk in it,
and find rest for your souls.”
(Jeremiah 6:16, NIV Bible quote)

I ask for the ancient paths.
I ask for the good way.
I walk the ancient and good path.
I find rest for my soul.
Thank you.

“Return unto thy rest, O my soul;
for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.

(Psalm 116:7, KJV Bible quote)
