    The LORD gives his own reward for doing good and for being loyal, and I refused to kill you even when the LORD placed you in my power, for you are the LORD’s anointed one. English Standard Version The LORD rewards every man for his righteousness and his faithfulness, for the LORD gave you into my hand today, and I would not put out my hand. THE FAITH-REST LIFE. Faith-Rest is the life of peace designed for you as a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. This life is characterized by a moment-by-moment tranquillity, happiness, and stability. But how can you have this perfect rest when you are surrounded by pressure, adversity, and disaster?

      The Reward of the Faithful. In one of Daniel's prophecies, details are added to the picture. Daniel 11 is a detailed description of national events that can largely be identified with events that have already occurred. Chap however, shows a time that has not yet been seen. Daniel Rest is also used to speak of peace in the personal sense as we see in Job's perplexity about his difficult experiences writing, "I am not at ease, nor am I quiet (shaqat = to be quiet, undisturbed, calm, at rest), and I am not at rest (Job , 17 - rest = Hebrew nuach; Lxx = anapauo), but turmoil (agitation, raging, trouble, trembling) comes.

      Question: "What does the Bible say about rest and relaxation?" Answer: “Rest” is defined as “peace, ease or refreshment.” “Relax” means “to become loose or less firm, to have a milder manner, to be less stiff.” The Bible speaks quite highly of rest. It is a repeated theme throughout Scripture, beginning with the creation week (Genesis ).   Jesus tells the Parable of the Laborers in the Vineyard (Matthew ) in response to Peter’s question in Matthew "We have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?" Peter wanted to know what reward would be given to those who give up everything to follow Jesus.
