‘So let us do our best to enter that rest. But if we disobey God,as the people of Israel did,we will fall.’ Hebrews 4:11(NLT)
God has made rest available to his people and only by faith can one come into this rest. Beloved,please do not harden your heart, rather,yield to the Holy Spirit and let him guide you through. Jesus Christ,our saviour,has made all provisions for us,including rest. A divine rest,that supersedes all the troubles that appear along the way as we journey home.
So,my friends,whatever might want to stress you or might even be stressing you at the moment can never be as great as the rest which is available to you in Christ Jesus. Be it academic,marital,financial or any other sort of burden. God’s rest is more than enough for you. Just close your heart to fear and open your eyes to faith and see the rest the Lord has for you in him. Only by faith can you get this rest(check: Hebrews 4:3). Never doubt because doubt could choke the seeds of faith that are in your heart concerning this divine rest. Get rid of doubt as soon as it appears!
Not believing this good news of the rest available to one in Christ can make one fall.Doubt can also thrust one into the path of God’s wrath.
So do all you can to hold on the faith in God for divine rest. Our God is truth and so is his rest for us true.
God’s rest completely eliminates stress.
Stay in his rest!
Please try to read the whole of Hebrews 4. It has more details on the topic ‘rest’.
