In Calm Repose
I will make them to lie down safely. (Hosea 2:18)
Yes, the saints are to have peace. The passage from which this gracious word is taken speaks of
peace “with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of the heaven, and with the creeping things of the
ground.” This is peace with earthly enemies, with mysterious evils, and with little annoyances! Any of
these might keep us from lying down, but none of them shall do so. The Lord will quite destroy those
things which threaten His people: “I will break the bow and the sword, and the battle out of the earth.”
Peace will be profound indeed when all the instruments of disquiet are broken to pieces.
With this peace will come rest, “So he giveth his beloved sleep.” Fully supplied and divinely quieted,
believers lie down in calm repose. This rest will be a safe one. It is one thing to lie down but quite
another “to lie down safely.” We are brought to the land of promise, the house of the Father, the
chamber of love, and the bosom of Christ: surely we may now “lie down safely.” It is safer for a
believer to lie down in peace than to sit up and worry.
“He maketh me to lie down in green pastures,” We never rest till the Comforter makes us lie down.
