TOPIC: A SURE RESTING PLACE

Read Jeremiah 6:16--20

MEMORISE

Thus says the Lord : "Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ' We will not walk in it."

( Jeremiah 6:16)

EXPOSITION
A house can be so magnificently beautiful, looking wonderfully habitable, yet it may not be able to give one true rest. In fact, having the best and most wonderfully relaxing bed cannot guarantee real rest. Why? The sure place of rest lies in the heart. If the mind has no rest, there is no place one can live on earth that would guarantee sure rest.
Man can only experience lasting rest when the heart is controlled by the Holy Spirit, and is rested on Christ's everlasting, might Arm. Those who do that have rest of mind. Therefore, it is only in Christ we have rest of mind. Jesus says in ( Matthew 11:28), Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Therefore only those who are in Christ would have rest, both immediately and ultimately in heaven.
What is the condition of your heart? Does it give you rest? Arterxerxes could not sleep, thought he was living in a gorgeous palace. Possibly that night, they had tried to set wine before him, yet to no avail. God gives our hearts the rest no material properties and immaterial things of the World can give. Not until King Arterxerxes discovered what was wrong, he had no rest of mind. ( Dan. 6:18--23).
A heart that is truly at rest in the Lord can sleep soundly even when sleeping on a bench and have a stone for a pillow. Christ is the only One Who gives this kind of rest. Make your faith in Him stronger than ever before, and He will give you the rest you so need and desire. Do not reject Christ as the Israelites did to Yahweh in Jeremiah's day.

PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord, give me the true lasting rest /peace of mind that You desire for me.
2. Specifically commit whatever situation is troubling your mind to the hands of God, right now.
3. Pray for brethren who are troubled in their hearts because of the situations they are passing through.
