REST in Him

coffee cup

As I began this Saturday meditating on the Lord. I opened up a book that has been sitting on my bedside table for two years. About that, I really don’t like sitting with a book reading it from cover to cover. Maybe it’s too much of a commitment for my busy mind. Anyway, I was reading about sharing the love of Jesus with the lost. The author wrote brief add-ons to the ten commandments. As I read about the honoring the Sabbath day to keep it holy (the 4th commandment), I think and pray, God help me understand this more and have a revelation that moves me into this rest. I have understood that we can’t walk in unbelief.  We need to rest in Him and His promises and literally rest. If not, we then end up like the Israelites wandering in a desert for 40 years before getting to the Promise land. Some did not get there at all.

With all that’s going on around us, I believe we do not need to be in unbelief or fear. This is not God’s plan and so we can pray according to the truth that He loves us and tells us not to fear or be anxious. Unbelief also hinders receiving the promise.  Having the truth in us from being in His Word is sure to bring about His promises.

Later on in the morning I listened to a message that happened to be about—wouldn’t you know it?—RESTING IN HIM.  With my little prayer to the Lord about this Sabbath rest and receiving from Him, He answered my prayer by giving me answers that I can directly deposit into my heart to receive more from Him. {A funny part about THIS part of the morning was just before this as I was trying to actually “rest” a bit with a cup of coffee and my breakfast—you know that picture perfect coffee on the table with steam rising?— I accidentally  forgot to put the cover on my coffee grinder as I was reaching for the extension cord {my coffee grinder ‘on’ button doesn’t work so I have to put the cover on and plug it in for it to be “on”}.Needless to say, I was showered with beans! I was trying to enter rest and a wanna-be chaotic moment came. lol; anyway I’m not looking to deeply into that. It’s just time for a new grinder or maybe stop trying so hard and just buy the grounds! I just love the smell of grinding the coffee though…..

Bottom line is, “we don’t have to do anything—we don’t have to make it happen. {God pre-ground the coffee!!} The only thing we have to do is fight the good fight to stay in the rest of God (Hebrews 4). If we’re not careful, our human nature and our religious mindset are going to try to make it happen.” We then get back into works; It’s not about how much we read our Bibles, how hard we pray, thinking then we’ll be worthy…  “Just believing Jesus has done it makes us worthy.  Labor to stay in that position. It’s Jesus alone. Rest in the finished work of the cross. He paid for our peace” (Isaiah 53:3-5)–Ashley Terradez

What have you been praying about? Are you anxious when praying? Striving to stay on top of the situation?  Give the situation to God. Lay down your burdens. Pray in faith and having a joyous expectation for what you’ve been praying for… big and small. Just Rest. Take a Sabbath day off from your toil.

I’ve seen so much fear and unbelief in the world as we all have but this is the culmination of the world not trusting in the one true God. He is faithful. Include Him back in your lives (message to the world at large)!

Pray, believe, have patience and faith. “Faith and patience plan for the future”–Carly Terradez,
