Who he is

"Let Him do what He pleases with me; I desire only Him, and to be wholly devoted to Him."

Brother Lawrence, The Practice of the Presence of God, second letter.

The deepest level of our relationship with Christ is not what he does with us today but who he is for us today. We can't predict from our experience what he'll do, but we know from the Bible who he is. "The Lord is my portion, says my soul; therefore I will hope in him" (Lamentations 3:24).

May our hearts dwell quietly in that deep resting place today.
