Do you have a restless heart? Do you fail to quiet your mind? The Bible is full of texts about rest. In the first Bible book Genesis it already becomes clear how important God thinks it is for us humans to take rest in our lives. The book of Genesis describes how God made the world and how God himself takes rest to enjoy his creation. In addition to physical rest, the Bible often speaks of rest and peace for the soul. What does the Bible say about rest? Let these texts quiet your soul.
God is not a God of disorder
but of peace1 Corinthians 14:33
Throw everything you’re worried about
into God’s hands
He cares for you1 Peter 5:7
Come to Me when you are tired
Come to Me when you are bowed down
under the weight of your problems!
I will give you rest
Do what I tell you
Learn from Me
For I am kind
and patiend and humble
Therefore you will find peace with MeMatthew 11:28-29
Stand still for a moment on the road you are on
Ask for the right road,
the way you used to go.
Because if you choose that road again,
you will be well again.
Then you will have peace again.Jeremiah 6:16
The Lord cares for me
as a shepherd cares for his sheep
I lack nothing
He lets me rest in green fields
He makes me drink from quiet streams
And He gives me strengthPsalm 23:1-3
He who takes refuge with God, the Most High
can sleep peacefully
for the Almighty protects him.
I bear witness of this
And say to the Lord:
‘You are my refuge,
With You I am safe and secure’Psalm 91:1-2
My heart turns to God
My salvation comes from his hand
He is truly my rock and my deliverer
He is like a fortress to me
Nothing gets me out of my balancePsalm 62:2
I give you my peace
The peace I give you
is a different kind of peace
than the peace of the world
Do not be afraid or sad anymoreJohn 14:27
Don’t worry about:
‘What should we eat?’
‘What should we drink?’
‘And what should we wear?’
Your heavenly Father knows that you need these things
Give the Kingdom of God and doing God’s will the first place
the first place in your life.
Then He will give you all these thingsMatthew 6:25-34
