From the belly of deep belief:
We rest in His perfect love.
We rest in His peace.
We rest in His strength.
We rest in His promises.
We rest in His word.
We rest in His goodness.
We rest in His works finished before time.
We rest in His favor.
Rest will never be letting God do all the work.
Rest isn’t sitting on a couch eating bon bons.
Rest is a Person, Jesus. He is our rest, our sabbath rest. Yes, He is the 8th day of rest … each and every day.
“For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken of another day later on. So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever has entered God's rest has also rested from his works as God did from his.” Hebrews 4:8-10
Rather. The point.
We believe and trust in Jesus unto emotional, mental, and spiritual rest!!!
Yes. It is possible to work hard and persevere within His purpose for us, and have rest at the same time.
The only thing we as believers strive or work for … is to stay in His rest.
“Let us therefore 👉 strive to enter that rest, so that no one may 👉 fall by the same sort of disobedience.” Hebrews 4:11
When we fail to labor or work into this rest, we wander into destructive disobedience.
In fact, our very best work (and fruit) will always come TODAY from our fixed position of sabbath rest!
“Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts.”
