Rest at the Feet of Jesus

May 4, 2020

Isaiah 60:13 … The glory of Lebanon will come to you, The juniper, the box tree and the cypress together, To beautify the place of My sanctuary; And I shall make the {resting}place of My feet{throne} glorious{full of glory}.

Matthew 11:28-30 … Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and my load is not hard to carry{walk with}.
=> notice 2 types of rest – simply come and then learn and walk yoked with Him!

Psalm 149:4-6 … For the LORD takes delight in His people; He crowns the humble with salvation{deliverance, victory}. 5 Let the saints be joyful in glory; Let them sing aloud on their beds{place of rest}. 6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands.

1Peter 5:5-7 … In the same way, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. And all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. 6 And God will exalt you in due time, if you humble yourselves under His mighty hand 7 by casting all your cares on Him because He cares for you.
