Title : Finding a Place of Rest By : Denise Boggs
\"This is my resting place forever\" (Psalms 132:14).

Do you want to find a restful place that is quiet and peaceful, but in addition to that, a spot where you can experience the presence of God? As per Psalm 132:14, God has established resting places, literal places which you\'ll find His resting places. \"\"\"God is calling every one of us to find a quiet place, a resting place where you can get alone to spend time with Him. From the story of Noah, after the world was destroyed by the flood, the very first thing Noah did was send a dove out to discover a place to rest.

“Then he (Noah) sent forth a dove to see if the waters had decreased from the surface of the ground. But the dove found no resting place on which to roost, and she returned to him to the ark, for the waters were yet on the face of the whole land. So he put forth his hand and drew her to him into the ark” (Genesis 8:8-9).

Noah represents God, and the Ark represents the safety of the presence of God. Only when you enter into His presence are you going to realize that place of peace and rest. Most probably within this account that this dove was weary of searching, so God stretched forth His hand and drew the dove back unto Himself. We all have been like that dove, needing a secure place to land. A resting place here on earth, where His presence is usually felt. Whenever you locate a resting place, you will know you have found it because your spirit will be peaceful. A dove is not going to land where there isn\'t any peace. You might be like the dove, searching for the best place; a resting place, a peaceful place.

God has resting places here on earth where He has established a dwelling place of His presence, “This is my resting place forever” (Psalm 132:14). Trust Him to send you to His resting place.
