The word REST in the Bible does not have the exact connotation of doing nothing or making complete stop of our lives. This word has a lot to do with our attitude of trusting, being assured and surrendering in the character of our God. Peace is not the absence of trouble, but is the presence of Christ.
Psalm 23:5-6 - You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. The favor of God will follow us, even when we're in the midst of our enemies. Don’t worry about being half full or half empty, instead declare that “my cup overflows”. Jesus gives us access to His heavenly blessings. Jesus gave us access to rest.
