A Place of Rest

A minister quoted someone in church today when he said, "Trusting in the Lord is a place of rest."

What a wonderful thought, a place of rest. How many of us desire to find that place of rest, that place of peace and calm for our troubled minds or ruffled emotions! Then to find that the true place of rest is not a location which much be traveled to or a state of mind which must be obtained, but a Person!

A Person who "delighteth in mercy". . . a Person who is "full of compassion" and "slow to anger". . . a Person who is "touched with the feeling of our infirmities". . .a Person who loves us enough to bear throughout eternity the wounds in His hands and feet as tangible evidence of that love.

Do you seek Peace? Do you seek rest? Run to the only One whose hands were pierced with nails so that your heart might always be at peace and your mind at rest. Trust in Jesus and find that place of rest.

"For we which have believed do enter into rest. . .,"
Hebrews 4:3
