Need some rest? Need some place to rest your head?


Don’t allow worry to rob you! Don’t allow fear to rob you! Don’t allow worry to rob you! Don’t stop believing! Don’t allow the peace that goes beyond all understanding to be taken from you!

Remember: There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus!

Remember: There is nothing that can separate you from the love of God!

We are both important to God! He loves you so much that He sent Jesus to pay the ultimate price! He loves us so much that He didn’t want us to be separate from Him, but rather that we would live this life we have in relationship with Him!

So take heart and trust in God!  Don’t worry, pray and rest Your cares upon Him!

Don’t lose hope! Don’t be afraid! Remember: Jesus loves us this we know for the Bible tells us so!


 


A Pillow on Which to Rest Our Weary Heads

  1. Tell of the great love of the Lord … Psalm 89:1-8
    • The focus of both our worship and our witness is the love of God.

      Worship

       

      This psalm begins with worship, a hymn of praise (vv.1–18), focusing on God’s love: ‘I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever’ (v.1).

       

       

      Think about God’s greatness and glory – how amazing it is to be loved by the ‘Lord God Almighty’ (v.8). This is something that can never be taken away from you. The psalmist writes, ‘Your love stands firm forever’ (v.2).

       

      Witness

      The message you pass onto others should always centre on God’s love: ‘I’ll never quit telling the story of your love’ (v.2, MSG).

  2. Meditate on the amazing love of Christ … Romans 8:18-39
    • How can you be sure of God’s love? Paul poses five unanswerable questions.

      With God on your side like this, how can you lose?

      ‘If God is for us, who can be against us?’ (v.31b). If God is for you, what others think is not so important. You are set free from the fear of people and from caring too much about what others think.

      If God gave his only Son for you, is he likely to withhold anything else?

      ‘He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all – how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?’ (v.32).

      Who is going to dare to prosecute you?

      ‘Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen?’ (v.33a).

      If God is the judge and Jesus your defence counsel, how can a prosecution succeed?

      ‘It is God who justifies. Who then can condemn?’ (vv.33b–34). Jesus is your defence lawyer. He is supremely qualified. ‘Christ Jesus, who died’ (v.34) has already served the sentence for us. He ‘was raised to life’ by God (v.34). He is in the supreme place of honour ‘at the right hand of God’ (v.34). He is praying for you (v.34). He is sticking up for you. Jesus never stops praying for you.

      How can anyone drive a wedge between you and Christ’s love?

      You can be separated from friends and family by circumstances or even death. But, ‘Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?’ (v.35a). This does not mean that life is easy. There may be trouble, hard times, hatred, hunger, homelessness, bullying threats and backstabbing. But ‘not even the worst sins listed in Scripture… None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us’ (vv.35b–37, MSG). In the midst of every difficulty you can cling to God’s love for you.

  3. Enjoy the unfailing love of God … Hosea 10:1-11:11
