Rest & Peace

Where do you look for your rest and peace? Are you grateful for your many blessings?

Let's look at 1 Chronicles 22:9 to see how God promises rest and peace to David through his child.

1 Chronicles 22:9 NIV 

But you will have a son who will be a man of peace and rest, and I will give him rest from all his enemies on every side. His name will be Solomon, and I will grant Israel peace and quiet during his reign.

1. The Lord promises David a son that will be blessed with peace and rest

2. He promises to give this son rest from all of his enemies; on every side

3. The name of this son will be Solomon

4. The Lord promises peace and quiet during Solomon's reign

5. Solomon's name means peace

It is important to remember that when things are chaotic and out of control, in your life, the Lord is always there. David dealt with a lot, during this time. He was a man of war and of bloodshed. However, the Lord loved him so much that He blesses him with peace through his son, Solomon. How amazing is that?


Dear Father, 

Thank you for always being there. Thank you for all of the many blessings that you have given to me. Father, I pray that when times are hard and out of control that you will help me to trust you to provide me with rest and with peace. Thank you for my many blessings. In Jesus' name, Amen.
