A Word on Wednesday: REST

Today I awoke with this thought, this scripture, and this song:

REST, enjoy His love

Jesus came to give us His rest of spirit, so we could enjoy God’s love):

I praise You, Father—Lord of heaven and earth. You have revealed Your truths to the lowly and the ignorant, the children and the crippled, the lame and the mute. You have hidden wisdom from those who pride themselves on being so wise and learned. 26 You did this, simply, because it pleased You. 27 The Father has handed over everything to My care. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son—and those to whom the Son wishes to reveal the Father. 28 Come to Me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Put My yoke upon your shoulders—it might appear heavy at first, but it is perfectly fitted to your curves. Learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble of heart. When you are yoked to Me, your weary souls will find rest. 30 For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light. (Matthew 11 :25-30 VOICE

REST

Rest, the Lord is near
Refuse to fear,
enjoy His love
Trust, His mighty power
Fills every hour, of all your days

 Chorus:
There is no need
For needless worry
With such a Savior
You have no cause to ever
Doubt, His perfect Word
Still reassures, in any trial

Rest, the Lord is there
Lift up your prayer
For He is strong
Trust, He’ll bring release
And perfect peace, will calm your mind

 (Chorus)

Call Him
If you grow frightened
Call Him
With loving care
He’ll lift the burden and you’ll

Rest, the Lord is near
Refuse to fear,
enjoy His love
Trust, His might power
Fills every hour, of all your days

Rest, the Lord is near
Refuse to fear,
enjoy His love
