The Two Thousand Dollar Mattress

The Two Thousand Dollar Mattress..

I once went looking for a mattress. I went into a store and tried laying on beds like the princess and the Pea. One is not right and this one has memory foam. They told me the price is $2,000 and I’ll feel refreshed. I told them that for $2,000, I’m definitely not going to feel refreshed. I’d feel more refreshed sleeping on a rock for free.

In Bible times, if you wanted firm support, you slept on a rock. It hit me how much people will pay to get rest. But Jesus said, “Come to Me, I’ll give you rest.”

It’s not what you are laying your body on, it’s what you are resting your soul on. If you will rest your mind and soul on Him, the Prince of Peace and not on your problems, you will have rest. I don’t care how soft it is, you cannot rest your soul on a mattress.

Stop worrying; rest and trust in the Lord and you will find rest for your soul, because He is truly the Sar Shalom, the Prince of Peace, and that’s better than a $2,000 mattress.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

You can find rest in the arms of Jesus. Put all your worries and cares upon Him. Let go of the rest and rest in Him.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
