Entering Into His Rest

Rest-in-God-sliderRecently something happened that challenged something God told me. It made me very nervous and concerned. But that is part for the course when you are waiting for the promises of God. But when challenged, all you need to do is go to God in prayer which is exactly what I did.

Well the Lord answered me, so precisely and strongly that it changed something inside of me permanently. I realize that there is a season in which you enter into God’s rest and you don’t come out of it.

The LORD’S answer finalized something for me once and for all and all I have to say is that, there will be no more fighting, no more contending and no more fear. God’s promises are going to come to pass. Period case closed.

When God shows you something, it’s for a season of time. Many things may take place before that happens. But it does not in anyway negate the promise of God. In fact some things must take place before you receive your promise or promises (because God has promised us many things).

Whether it’s healing, wealth, salvation of loved one, ministry or career, there may be some things that must come to pass BEFORE your promises manifest. Don’t be discouraged by what you see or hear. God know exactly what He is doing.

Sometimes we have to go around the same mountain of hurt, pain and devastation until we learn those lessons once and for all. But it’s all good! God is good!

Hebrews 4:9-11 Amplified Bible (AMP)

So there remains a [full and complete] Sabbath rest for the people of God. 10 For the one who has once entered His rest has also rested from [the weariness and pain of] his [human] labors, just as God rested from [those labors uniquely] His own. 11 Let us therefore make every effort to enter that rest [of God, to know and experience it for ourselves], so that no one will fall by following the same example of disobedience [as those who died in the wilderness].
