2 Chronicles 20:17

King James Version

17 Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: 

set yourselves, 

stand ye still, 

and see the salvation of the Lord with you, 

O Judah and Jerusalem: 

fear not, 

nor be dismayed; 

to morrow go out against them: 

for the Lord will be with you.

Rest signifies TRUST in God.

It signifies FAITH in Him.

Is signifies your CONFIDENCE in the Lord.

What more can you do, when all has been done?

Does God sleep?

Does God forget?

Is God not made aware?

Has God abandoned His faithful?

It's time to rest from your labors, concerns, and anxieties.

Let God show you HIS saving power.

Scripture has these to say, so you may find comfort in FAITH, REST, and TRUST in the LORD GOD, through His SON, JESUS.

Exodus 14:13-14

King James Version

13 And Moses said unto the people, 

Fear ye not, 

stand still, 

and see the salvation of the Lord, 

which he will shew to you to day

for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, 

ye shall see them again no more for ever.

14 The Lord shall fight for you, 

and ye shall hold your peace.

Job 37:10-15

King James Version

10 By the breath of God frost is given: 

and the breadth of the waters is straitened.

11 Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: 

he scattereth his bright cloud:

12 And it is turned round about by his counsels: 

that they may do whatsoever 

he commandeth them 

upon the face of the world in the earth.

13 He causeth it to come, 

whether for correction, 

or for his land, 

or for mercy.

14 Hearken unto this, 

O Job: 

stand still, 

and consider the wondrous works of God.

15 Dost thou know when God disposed them, 

and caused the light of his cloud to shine?

Psalm 37:7

King James Version

7 Rest in the Lord, 

and wait patiently for him

fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, 

because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

Psalm 46:10-11

King James Version

10 Be still, 

and know that I am God

I will be exalted among the heathen, 

I will be exalted in the earth.

11 The Lord of hosts is with us; 

the God of Jacob is our refuge


Psalm 62:1-2

King James Version

62 Truly my soul waiteth upon God: 

from him cometh my salvation.

2 He only is my rock and my salvation; 

he is my defence; 

I shall not be greatly moved.

Psalm 107:29-31

King James Version

29 He maketh the storm a calm, 

so that the waves thereof are still.

30 Then are they glad because they be quiet; 

so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

31 Oh that men would praise the Lord 

for his goodness, 

and for his wonderful works 

to the children of men!

Psalm 131

King James Version

131 Lord, 

my heart is not haughty, 

nor mine eyes lofty: 

neither do I exercise myself in great matters, 

or in things too high for me.

2 Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, 

as a child that is weaned of his mother: 

my soul is even as a weaned child.

3 Let Israel hope in the Lord 

from henceforth and for ever.

Ecclesiastes 3:1

King James Version

3 To every thing there is a season, 

and a time to every purpose 

under the heaven:

Ecclesiastes 3:7-8

King James Version

7 A time to rend, 

and a time to sew; 

a time to keep silence

and a time to speak;

8 A time to love, 

and a time to hate; 

a time of war, 

and a time of peace.

Isaiah 30:15

King James Version

15 For thus saith the Lord God, 

the Holy One of Israel; 

In returning and rest shall ye be saved; 

in quietness and in confidence 

shall be your strength

and ye would not.

Habakkuk 2:20

King James Version

20 But the Lord is in his holy temple: 

let all the earth keep silence before him.

Zephaniah 3:16-17

King James Version

16 In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, 

Fear thou not

and to Zion, 

Let not thine hands be slack.

17 The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; 

he will save, 

he will rejoice over thee with joy; 

he will rest in his love, 

he will joy over thee with singing.

Matthew 6:25-34

King James Version

25 Therefore I say unto you, 

Take no thought for your life

what ye shall eat, 

or what ye shall drink; 

nor yet for your body, 

what ye shall put on. 

Is not the life more than meat, 

and the body than raiment?

26 Behold the fowls of the air: 

for they sow not, 

neither do they reap, 

nor gather into barns; 

yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. 

Are ye not much better than they?

27 Which of you by taking thought 

can add one cubit unto his stature?

28 And why take ye thought for raiment? 

Consider the lilies of the field, 

how they grow; 

they toil not, 

neither do they spin:

29 And yet I say unto you, 

That even Solomon in all his glory 

was not arrayed like one of these.

30 Wherefore, 

if God so clothe the grass of the field, 

which to day is, 

and to morrow is cast into the oven, 

shall he not much more clothe you, 

O ye of little faith?

31 Therefore take no thought, 


What shall we eat? 

or, What shall we drink? 

or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) 

for your heavenly Father knoweth 

that ye have need of all these things.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, 

and his righteousness; 

and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: 

for the morrow shall take thought 

for the things of itself. 

Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Mark 6:30-32

King James Version

30 And the apostles gathered themselves together 

unto Jesus, 

and told him all things

both what they had done, 

and what they had taught.

31 And he said unto them

Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, 

and rest a while

for there were many coming and going, 

and they had no leisure so much as to eat.

32 And they departed into a desert place 

by ship privately.

Luke 10:38-42

King James Version

38 Now it came to pass, 

as they went, 

that he entered into a certain village: 

and a certain woman named Martha 

received him into her house.

39 And she had a sister called Mary, 

which also sat at Jesus' feet, 

and heard his word.

40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, 

and came to him, 

and said, 


dost thou not care 

that my sister hath left me to serve alone

bid her therefore that she help me.

41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, 



thou art careful and troubled about many things:

42 But one thing is needful: 

and Mary hath chosen that good part, 

which shall not be taken away from her.

Hebrews 4:3-11

King James Version

3 For we which have believed 

do enter into rest

as he said, 

As I have sworn in my wrath, 

if they shall enter into my rest: 

although the works were finished 

from the foundation of the world.

4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day 

on this wise, 

And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.

5 And in this place again, 

If they shall enter into my rest.

6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, 

and they to whom it was first preached entered not in 

because of unbelief:

7 Again, he limiteth a certain day, 

saying in David, 

To day, 

after so long a time; 

as it is said, 

To day if ye will hear his voice

harden not your hearts.

8 For if Jesus had given them rest, 

then would he not afterward 

have spoken of another day.

9 There remaineth therefore a rest 

to the people of God.

10 For he that is entered into his rest, 

he also hath ceased from his own works, 

as God did from his.

11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, 

lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

Faith, trust, and rest are needed.

Believers must.

The born again trusts the Lord completely.

Otherwise, this happens, as the LORD JESUS manifested.

Mark 6:5-6

King James Version

5 And he could there do no mighty work

save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, 

and healed them.

6 And he marvelled because of their unbelief

And he went round about the villages, 


Instead, let's HEED the COMMAND of our SAVIOR:

Mark 5:36

King James Version

36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, 

he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, 

Be not afraid, 

only believe.
