Come unto me , all ye that labor and heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthews 11-28

"Faye's Daily Words Of Encouragement" # 119 Today's Word Is: Rest "

Definition of the word Rest:Means relaxation, a pause,; a remainder, to relax, to lie against or on. to rest in God or the Sabbath day.

Genesis chapter 2- 2 :  And on the seventh day, God ended his work which he made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made

Genesis chapter 49 - 15 : And he  saw that rest was good, and the Lord saw that it was pleasant; and bowed his servant unto tribute.

Matthews chapter 11 - 28 : Come unto me all ye that labor and heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Matthews chapter 12 - 43 : When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

Psalms chapter 37 -7 : Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prosper in is way, because of the man who bring wicked devices to pass.

Mark chapter 6 -31 : And he said come unto ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.

Today's word is Rest, after putting in hours of hard labor on a job; we look for ward to resting after work. It's very important that the children of God get their needed rest ;  this is why God blessed and sanctified the seven day to make it holy unto rest, because  that in it he had rested from all his work: which God had made.  We know for a fact that rest is very important to God or he wouldn't have made blessed  and sanctified the seventh day, just for a rest period for mankind.

We need rest so we can regroup and recuperate and began a new day with vigor and energy.   Rest is a blessing from God, to relax and enjoy in it.So let's use the day of rest  to fully rejuvenate and give us the needed energy and power to continue our fight with Satan and the principalities of of life.  Rest is a four letter word that gives us power to sustain ourselves.

      Thank you Faye. Today is/was a/my day of rest. I couldn't keep tearing my body down, which is what I was doing. God, my inner voice, my body said,"Whoa Nelly." A person has to recuperate. A person needs to rest as hard as they work. Thanks always

      I agree with you, and Matthew 11 does come unto me all you who are heavy laden. When one tries to go beyond their limits, they will find themselves suffering burnout and possibly end up in a hospital bed. The body,mind and soul all need rest at some point. Thank you for this hub. May peace from God be yours.

      Benny,

      Very good, many of us including myself are not getting the needed rest. I know that I have to work on it.

      Yes rest is important for us holistically, body, spirit, soul. Without rest the body would collapse. I think it is important for all of us laboring in God's vineyard to get our proper rest so that we may give our best to the Master.

      Nice thought for today creativeone.

      Forever His,

    working
