Rest in the Lord

September 6

Ps 37:7 – Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

Rest: mental or spiritual calm; tranquility. Rest denotes trust. We can rest when we really believe that the Lord with cause all things to work together for good on our behalf. Rest says we have ceased from our own efforts and now trust in God’s way.


Rest Confidently in the Lord

Heb 10:35-36 – Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.

Rest in your labors rather than from your labors

Gal 6:9 – And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Enter into God’s rest by faith

Heb 4:3;11 – For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world….11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

Prayer Focus: Father, thank you for the gift of rest. Help me to trust your will and surrender mine to you where I can find comfort and safety.


Verse of the Day: Isa 40:31 – But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Living the Word Today: Rest in the Lord – Release the Care, Expect God’s Blessings, Speak Your Faith, Trust God for a Glorious Outcome.

Greetings in the wonderful name of Jesus!

Happy 39th anniversary Greenville Community Christian Church. Our anniversary theme is “Be Still and Know,” from Psalm 46:10, “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” Join us in rejoicing and celebrating what the Lord has done over the years to bring us to this point. All praise, honor, and glory belong to God.

Ps 46 is a message to the Saints. The Lord is comforting and strengthening us through this beautiful psalm. We are reminded that Lord is our strength, and we are to trust in Him. He is God. Therefore, we should not fret or be anxious. Trust in God. He is our place of refuge.
