Faith is to rest, not in the best of God's servants, but in His unchanging Word.

    Author: Harry Ironside

A believer longs after God: to come into His presence, to feel His love, to feel near to Him in secret, to feel in the crowd that he is nearer than all the creatures. Ah! dear brethren, have you ever tasted this blessedness? There is greater rest and solace to be found in the presence of God for one hour, than in an eternity of the presence of man.

    Author: Hannah Whitall Smith

Once I knew what it was to rest upon the rock of God's promises, and it was indeed a precious resting place, but now I rest in His grace. He is teaching me that the bosom of His love is a far sweeter resting-place than even the rock of His promises.

    Author: S.D. Gordon

How sweet is rest after fatigue! How sweet will heaven be when our journey is ended.

In His time, God gives us rest from every test.

    Author: Woodrow Kroll

Rest is a matter of wisdom, not law.

Rest time is not waste time. It is economy to gather fresh strength... It is wisdom to take occasional furlough. In the long run, we shall do more by sometimes doing less.

The bow cannot be always bent without fear of breaking. Repose is as needful to the mind as sleep to the body... Rest time is not waste time. It is economy to gather fresh strength.
