You know what, I need help to remember! Maybe you need to be reminded also.
I tend to forget that we are invited into God’s rest daily. He wants us to come to Him, find rest in Him and be secure in Him. I need to be reminded of that like David wrote in Psalm 27:
One thing I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: to live in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple. For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will set me high on a rock.
The invitation goes like this:
Today, if you hear His voice, enter into His rest.
The only thing that disqualify you from entering into His rest is disobedience and unbelief. This means that we must trust and believe that God invited us, and then enter in. We cannot enter into His rest as long as any of these negative sinful things rule our lives. BUT God invites us to come to Him. When we are willing to let go of these lies and trust completely in His unfailing love for us, we enter into His rest…
If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will also be. And if anyone serves Me, the Father will honour him.
All to often we come to the Lord with a wish-list or a list of requirements. We “claim in Jesus name” and “demand his promises” over us. When will we realize that God’s will is done in our lives when we move into his presence? When will we realize that God wants us to be in Him so that He can have His way, His will be done in us?
…In him we live and move and have our being…
The best place to be is with Jesus Christ. We need to be conscious of His Presence every minute of every day. Let us make an effort to start each day with Jesus and ask Him to help us to follow Him this day…!
