Apprehend – Ìsinmi

Most times, our human nature (the flesh) wants us to find rest in things that are ephemeral. We want to make more money, buy the best car, house, get the best degrees, etc.

Our pursuit of these things is almost always based on the belief that they will complete us and give us rest and happiness.

In doing so, we focus on our strength and not on God’s promise of rest. Don’t get it wrong, money is good, living in a good house is awesome, driving a comfortable car is nice (Christ has, in fact, called us to excellence), but these things cannot give us rest or happiness.

If our desire for them is not guided by biblical principles, we will never be satisfied.

The question is, where are you finding rest? Our rest should be in Christ. He will teach us to understand timing according to his will. He will teach us to worry less and trust more. He will teach us to trust that His plans for us are good.

He will teach us that our time and breakthrough will come according to His timing. He will teach us patience. He will remind us that we are not of this world. He will give us rest (Ísinmi).

Solo 1:

Oluwa l'oluso aguntan mi
Ki yo s'alaini
He leadeth me beside the still waters
I have come to learn
That rest is not in what I earn
Not in any worldy concern
Are you heavy laden?
Come find rest for your soul,

Alaafia fonile alaafia f'alejo
To all and sundry
My peace I give not as the world gives

Bayo Adegbite:

It is vain for you to rise up early
And sit up late
And eat the bread of sorrows
Come to the still waters
And drink your souls to rest, mo ri ooo

I find rest in you God
