2 Chronicles 14
I loved this verse from chapter 14: "Let us build up these towns," [Asa] said to Judah, "and put walls around them, with towers, gates and bars. The land is still ours, because we have sought the Lord our God; we sought him and he has given us rest on every side." (vs 7) The Israelites in Judah had not yet forsaken what they had learned in Egyptian captivity—that God is the very best King there is.
When we seek God, we will find rest on every side. Rest is the very first thing He gave us, providing a whole day of rest to Adam and Eve the day after He created them. And, just in case we would forget, Jesus reminded us that to find rest, all we had to do was come to Him: "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 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. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." (Matt 11:28-30)
When we need rest, when we need peace, there is only one place to go. And when we go to God, we will not only find rest, but we will find rest on all sides. God isn’t just out to give us a little peace, He is out to give us total peace. He wants us to rest in Him, to trust in Him, and to put our faith in what He knows is best. He just wants to give us rest.
