They that believe have entered into rest. (Hebrews 4:3)

"They that believe have entered into rest." (Hebrews 4:3)

If you know that God loves you and cares for you and is going to look after you no matter what happens, you can have "perfect peace", and you can just rest in the Lord, knowing He's going to take care of everything. (Isa.26:3) But if you're confused and worrying and fretting and fuming, you're not trusting. You don't have the faith you ought to have.

The secret of calm and peace, rest and patience, faith and love is resting in the Lord!--Getting calm before the Lord and praising and seeking the Lord. Trusting is a picture of complete rest, peace and quiet of mind, heart and spirit. Even though you may be busy and in action, your attitude and spirit remain calm. Jesus said, "Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest!" (Mat.11:28)

Help us, Lord, not to be so pressured that we put off our time with Thee. Help us to put Thee first each day, to bask spiritually in Thy sunshine, rest in Thy arms, drink deeply of Thy Word and inhale of Thy Spirit! Hallelujah!

"There is a place of quiet rest,
Near to the heart of God.
A place where sin cannot molest,
Near to the heart of God.

Oh Jesus, blessed Redeemer,
Sent from the heart of God,
Hold us who wait before Thee,
Near to the heart of God!"
