For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He has said: “So I swore in My wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest…’” Hebrews 4:3
The most vital thing you can do with the Word God has given you at any point in your walk with Him is to rest in it. How do you do that? By believing in the efficacy of the Word and in the integrity of Him who promised, and ceasing from all worry, anxiety and fear.
The writer of the book of Hebrews charged the children of Israel with fault; ‘they could not enter into the land of promise because of their unbelief.’ So, you see that unbelief is counter-productive and only births fear and failure. For a believer, the blessedness of living in victory lies in your ability to believe and rest in the Word of God.
I charge you this day to ‘BELIEVE’ God’s Word to you and rest in Him. Psalm 127:2 says, “It is useless to work so hard for a living, getting up early and going to bed late. For the Lord provides for those he loves, while they are asleep,” (GNT). In other words, resting in God, His Word, His promise and His power says to Him that you trust Him to do what He would do; and that He can do without the arm of flesh to perform His counsels. So, when you labor and work, don’t do it thinking that that is all that prospers you; do it trusting that it takes the breath and the blessing of God upon your labor for it to turn to profit. God loves that, for nothing pleases Him more than to be believed, and nothing displeases Him more than to be disbelieved.
Your rest in God moves Him to take over, then He makes sure your needs are abundantly supplied – remember that Adam had to be put to ‘sleep’ (had to be in a place of rest in God) before God could give Him his wife.
All things are possible to them that believe! (Mark 9:23). If you will labor at all, let it be to labor to enter into God’s rest.
+ Pray for strength in your inner man to keep you secure in your faith, give you peace of mind and rest for your soul.
+ Come against any fear, doubt or anxiety that would keep you from entering God’s rest.
