At rest, in Him

Talking with a friend today and this true statement came up.  "Most of what Satan is trying to do is to take us out of a place of rest."  Psalm 131 is a picture of that place of rest and trust in God.  It is our 'home.'  When we are not 'in' our home, we are in a place of wandering.  Wandering is the curse put on Cain.  Wandering is the state of everyone 'in Adam.'  In Christ, we have truly found our home, and in His victory, we can find rest.  We receive best when we come to God knowing that all our needs our met, (1 Cor. 1:30) and that we are just content to 'be' with Him.  It is at the place of not 'needing' to receive that we truly can receive.
