Words of Rest and Renewal

We've been carrying a pretty heavy load for the past few weeks, but have really been encouraged by the knowledge that another volunteer couple is coming later this week to work in both the coffeehouse and the house church ministry. With that in mind, you can imagine our delight when we read the title of the this week's entries in our devotional guide: "Come and Rest Awhile." :)

AFFIRMATION: "The beloved of the LORD rests in safety - the High God surrounds him all day long - the beloved rests between his shoulders." -Deuteronomy 33:12

GOD'S PROMISE: "And you will have confidence, because there is hope; you will be protected and take your rest in safety. You will lie down, and no one will make you afraid; many will entreat your favor." -Job 11:18-19

MY RESPONSE: "So then, a Sabbath rest remains for the people of God; for those who enter God's rest also cease from their labors as God did from his. Let us therefore make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one may fall." -Hebrews 4:9-11
