God's Promise Of Rest

I can barely believe it but today we have our final couplet in my "God's Promises" series! This year we've looked at His promises for protection, love, hope, wisdom, answered prayer, companionship, strength, salvation, provision, forgiveness, peace and now finally for December, rest.

What an incredible list of precious treasures for the child of God! Even through all the challenges of the last year, I know I can look back and see how Jesus has brought all of these wonderful things into my life and I give Him praise for His faithfulness. What moments or situations come to your mind when you look at this list and think over the last twelve months?

I hope December's couplet, focusing on "rest" can bless and encourage us today. This month can certainly be full of stress and busyness but may we find rest in our heart and mind as we dwell on the Reason for this season.
God's Promise- Rest

"Should my heart be weary and heavy in my chest,
Bring me Lord, before Your Throne. In You I find my rest."

Matthew 11:28-30
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
