"There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God." - Hebrews 4:9
Blessed motto for the close of the month, or the day, or year; after
being fatigued with the thoughts, and cares, and anxieties of life. My
soul, delight thyself in the thought of it, look forward to the speedy
enjoyment of it. Like the prophet's vision, it will come; wait for it.
No sorrow you have gone through will ever come over again. No
persecution already felt shall exactly be again practiced. The same
trial shall not be again known, Every day, every hour of the day, we
are nearer home. Precious consideration. And Jesus is the rest of his
people. Lord, in thee alone I find rest; be thou my hope, and be thou
my portion forever.
