Your Resting Place


My text will be from Jeremiah 50:6. My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace.



Here in this context the Lord tells of his people how they have been lied to and mislead by phony pastors and ministers so the Lord likens them to wandering sheep that have forgotten their resting place.

They were told that Egypt would protect them. They also were told that the false gods of the heathen would protect them.

They perhaps were looking for rest and peace but rest and peace is not found in man, but the Lord. They forgot that it was the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that would be their protector and resting place.


So often we get caught up in the things of this world that we forget spiritual things. We forget where we can put our confidence and hope in. We forget that our peace and rest is in Jesus Christ, not in money, military, politics, science, education, jobs, and even religion. None of these can save or give peace to the weary soul.


Rest comes in Jesus. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30.


Don’t forget your resting place. Your resting place is in Jesus.
