Week 36 – 2018

“What Does HIS Rest Look Like?”

In order to understand the rest available to the believer, we must first understand the work. The work spoken of is not referring to physical labor, but rather the worry and anxiety associated with having to figure out life in one’s own strength.
Thus, the rest is a result of effectively casting one’s care on the Lord, knowing He cares for you, PERSONALLY! (See 1 Peter 5:7, Psalms 55:22)

“There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that has entered into His rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as God did from His. Let us labour therefore to enter into THAT rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.” (Hebrews 4:9-11 emphasis mine)

“For with stammering lips and another tongue will He speak unto this people. To whom He said, this is THE rest wherewith you may cause the weary to rest; and this is THE refreshing: but they would not hear.” (Isaiah 28:11, 12 emphasis mine)

So go ahead, and labor to enter into His rest; for the work to enter THAT rest, is worth the peace that is released.

Those with ears to hear, feel free to hear.
