Your Place of Rest

 

Las Vegas scene 1 - Curtis Byyny

You may hear the phrase often to ‘rest in the Lord’ but how do you do that? So many believers have been taught that they/you have to do something (behavior based) to make sure you are spiritual and in line to receive God’s blessings. God forbid that you should miss the mark and be the recipient of God’s anger and disapproval. THAT is the BAD news and certainly NOT the Gospel of God’s Grace established through Jesus and what He purchased for everyone (the ‘whosoever’s’). Well, then HOW do you rest as a believer? The rest of faith is when you decidedly receive the promise(s) of God, the provision(s) of what Jesus provides—“so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power” (1 Corinthians 2:5). Continue renewing your heart and mind in God’s faithfulness and His Word of promise, and then STAND in confident assurance that He is working out His Word in your midst. Psalm 62:5 (NIV) says, “Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.”

It’s easy to rest when you know He has you covered and His promises and provisions are yours.
