Those who find Jesus find peace. The Saviour gives us of His Spirit, and through the Holy Ghost, we learn patience, wisdom, contentment and godliness... Those who spend time in prayer find rest in a Saviour that will never leave us nor forsake us.

This verse communicates REST! When life throws you situations of unrest, God will give you rest in the midst of the turmoil, and literally provide moments of quiet reprieve and peace and the assurance that he is in control
