Joy in Rest

A rest area can become an oasis along the highway if fatigued drivers choose to take a break from their journey. Do we heed the call to rest, or push on, becoming even more exhausted along the road? So, too, our life can make us weary as we travel through our days, but God calls us not to harden our hearts to His call, but to listen and respond. When we do that, He promises that He will provide us with rest for our weary souls: There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God;for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from His. (Hebrews 4:9-10). “Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts” (Hebrews 4:7); instead, respond to His call, spend time with God, and receive joy as you rest with Him.
