God is not against human effort. Hard work honors God. But working to the exclusion of rest or to the neglect of family may be a cover-up for an inability to trust God to provide for our needs. We all need adequate rest and times of spiritual refreshment. On the other hand, this verse is not an excuse to be lazy. Be careful to maintain a balance: work while trusting God, and also rest while trusting him.
It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones. (Psalms 127:2 NLT)
Hear me callin’
You start fallin’
Heed my warnin’
You’ve been wrong before
Don’t be wrong anymore
Modern society longs for peace of mind. Here is clear-cut instruction on how to attain this: if we love God and obey his laws, we will have “great peace.” Trust in God, who alone stands above the pressures of daily life and gives us full assurance.
Those who love your instructions have great peace and do not stumble. (Psalms 119:165 NLT)

Do our prayers end with requests for help to make it through stressful situations? David prayed not merely for rescue, but for victory. With God’s help we can claim more than mere survival-we can claim victory! Look for ways God can use your distress as an opportunity to show his mighty power.
With God’s help we will do mighty things, for he will trample down our foes. (Psalms 108:13 NLT)
We are fragile, but God’s care is eternal. Too often we focus on God as Judge and Lawgiver, ignoring his compassion and concern for us. When God examines our lives, he remembers our human condition. Our weakness should never be used as a justification for sin. His mercy takes everything into account. God will deal with you compassionately. Trust him.
The lord is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him. For he knows how weak we are; he remembers we are only dust. (Psalms 103:13, 14 NLT)
