DAILY READINGS: 1 Chronicles 12:1-40; Ezekiel 13:1-23; John 4:31-54

Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee. Psalm 116:7

Often as believers, we may find our souls in a state of heaviness and unrest due to “manifold temptations” (1 Peter 1:6). Does this describe you today? The Psalmist suggests that rest can once again be found by
returning to the one who promises rest for your soul (Matt. 11:29). As we refocus on the one who “daily loadeth us with benefits” (Ps. 68:19), we’ll be able to say with the Psalmist, “Why art thou cast down, O my
soul?…hope thou in God!” (Ps. 42:5). —E. V.

When peace like a river attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
“It is well, it is well with my soul.” —Horatio G. Spafford
