September 25 – Come and Stay
Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Yes, come for rest. But stay for rest, too. Stop all feverish haste and be calm and untroubled. Come unto Me, not only for petitions to be granted but for nearness to Me.
Be sure of My Help, be conscious of My Presence, and wait until My Rest fills your soul.
Rest knows no fear. Rest knows no want. Rest is strong, sure. The rest of soft glades and peacefully flowing rivers, of strong, immovable hills. Rest, and all you need to gain this rest is to come to Me. So come.
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casteth out fear; because fear
hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18
