Rest in the Lord

Hebrews 4:9-10  Consequently a Sabbath rest remains for the people of God. For the one who enters God’s rest has also rested from his works, just as God did from his own works. 

We know that it is important for our bodies to get a proper night’s rest, and if we don’t, there are unpleasant consequences. But if physical rest is important to our physical well being, spiritual rest is even more important to our spiritual well being.

But how do we rest? We can rest studying the Word of God. There is worship, praise, along with coming to Him with humility.

It is a partnership that you develop with your creator. It is entering into His rest and casting your burden on Him. Trusting God means we give up worrying, reasoning, and anxiety and we enter into His rest with simple childlike faith—we live by grace through faith.

Resting in the Lord is also giving up the ego and not having your way. Surrendering to God’s Will helps you rest.

God loves us unconditionally. No matter what nothing can separate us from His love. His love does not fluctuate as it does with people. The Lord does not hang it over our heads when we mess up or sinned. Remember that you are loved and fully known, remember this so you can enter His rest.
