Even there you will find no rest

Isaiah 23:12
No more of your reveling, O Virgin Daughter of Sidon, now crushed!
Up, cross over to Cyprus; even there you will find no rest.

One of the effects of God's discipline or judgment is the lack of rest. Some seek rest just by changing their location or situation, but Jesus says, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls."Matt 11:28,29

What is your destiny? Toil or Rest?

Revelation 14:11  "And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever.
There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image,
or for anyone who receives the mark of his name."

Revelation 14:13  "Write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on."
"Yes," says the Spirit, "they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them."

Rest is found in the grace of God.
