God says it is good to rest

Do you have a job? Maybe you go to college, or volunteer. Maybe you clean your home and cook your dinner. The Bible says it is very good to work. But no one can work all the time. If we work too much we will make ourselves tired and ill.

The Bible says that we all need to rest. When we rest we don’t do any work. We relax and have a break. Resting helps to keep our bodies and minds healthy. And it helps us remember that God is bigger and stronger than we are.

Psalms chapter 121 says:

I look up to the hills,
but where will my help really come from?
My help will come from the Lord,
the Creator of heaven and earth.
He will not let you fall.
Your Protector will not fall asleep.
Israel’s Protector does not get tired..
He never sleeps.
(Psalms chapter 121 verses 1-4, ERV)

That’s right! God does not get tired like we do. Sometimes I feel worried about things and that keeps me awake. But I know that I can rest and go to sleep because God is looking after me. 

What is your favourite way to rest?
