ENTERING GOD’S REST

image

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Hebrews 4: 9-11

9There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. 10For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. 11Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.”

KJV

The rest that God promised us here is the kind of life God designed for us before the fall; the Eden life; a life in which you are productive and fruitful without sweat; a life where you don’t struggle to please God because He works in you both to will and to do His good pleasure; a life of constant and deeper relationship with God. At that point, you’ve been totally swallowed up by God’s presence and glory. Does that mean you will no longer have problems and challenges in life? No. These challenges may come, but you now operate on a higher plane. You are no longer subject to elemental spirits of this world. It’s a life of the supernatural. Now, faith in God’s word is what you need to come into this rest. In verse 1-2, the Israelites of old missed that rest because of unbelief. We see in verse 3 that when we believe we come into that rest. But it is just a foretaste of the glory that will come at the return of our Lord. That is when we will come into fullness of God’s rest. But while we are waiting for that, there is a kind of life that God desires for us. It is the abundant life that Jesus promised us in John 10:10. The starting point is unwavering faith in God’s word, then walking daily with Jesus, depending wholly on Him for everything.

Go into today knowing that Jesus has already paid for your rest in this world, you are walking in victory daily as you keep walking in the light of His word.

Prayer: Thank you dear lord for your rest. I pray your give me grace to walk daily in this rest. Amen
