Peace And Rest


My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation,
In secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places,
- Isaiah 32:18 -


Peace and rest belong only to God's people.
 
The God of Peace gives perfect peace to those whose hearts are with Him.
 
Before the fall of Adam, God gave him the garden of Eden as his quiet resting place.
 
When the flood swept away the guilty race, the chosen family was secured in the resting place of the ark.
 
When the destroying angel struck the first-born of Egypt, the people of Israel rested safely in the blood sprinkled habitations.
 
In the wilderness, under the shadow of the pillar of cloud, and the flowing rock, the weary Israelites enjoyed their sweet rest.
 
At this hour...
 
We rest in the promises of our faithful God.
 
We rest in Him whose words are full of truth and power.
 
We rest in the doctrines of His word.
 
We rest in the covenant of His grace.
 
Nothing can invade or destroy our shelter of peace and rest.
 
The person of the Lord Jesus Christ is the quiet resting place of His people.
 
Let us draw near to Him and enjoy the return of peace to our spirits.
