Entering Rest — 6 Comments

  1. Thankfully, our God is the God not of change, but of exchange. As He said in IS.61: To console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;

    We must believe in Him, that He will give us rest, and be rest personified, as we give Him our restlessness. We need to overcome restlessness, but really it’s Christ who overcomes for us as we trust Him. Isn’t He amazing? He’s the ultimate Good Shepherd who delights in making the exchange.

    What you wrote here is a punch in my face, but in a good way:
    Could it be that the Lord is allowing some of these external hardships until we learn to enter into His “rest” in the midst of these storms ?

  2. Gen 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
    Gen 1:31 And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
    Gen 2:2-3 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made
    From the 1st. day to the 6th. day there was an evening and a morning, but on the 7th. day there is no evening and morning. God is in His day of rest and has been since He rested. We enter into God’s rest when we believe in His promises and rest in them. The Sabbath Rest is not a particular day but is a realm within Christ to dwell in His promises.

  3. I fell in love with this passage and found it fascinating as the presence of God came through the Jordan River and the miracle of the water not touching the Ark of the Covenant. The Jordan River represents a freedom that comes after a long season of adversity and waiting. The Lord Jesus our God passed through the Jordan River into a new life of His teaching and Healing ministry.  It is humility that will bring us to repentance, which is the key in experiencing a turn around in our lives. We, the remnant must pray against the spirit of pride so that those that need Christ will come into humility and accept this beautiful gift of life. We are commmanded to love the Lord our God, and we are to worship Him only, to meditate on His Word day and night. Crossing the Jordan River and entering the Lord’s land of promise will bring us into His rest as you posted here and will bring us into the ministry of signs and wonders that only He will do through us as it will be so much needed in this coming season.  Thank you so much for bringing this much needed message we all need and blessings to you and family!!!
