(You’re Called Into God’s Rest)
TO THE BIBLE: Psalm 132:14
“This is my resting place forever; here I will dwell, for I have desired it.”
Did you know that God isn’t working or creating new things today? Nor is He modifying that which He already made? The Bible says He finished all His works from the foundation of the world (Hebrews 4:3). He’s in absolute rest, not busy fixing things or trying to make them work.
The good news is: this is the kind of life He has given us—a life of rest, where we don’t struggle for anything. You’ve been called into God’s rest. Remember, God made man on the sixth day of creation and rested on the seventh. Man’s first day on earth was God’s resting day. Have you ever asked why God didn’t make man on the first day when everything was still a chaotic mass, or on the second or third day? It’s because He wanted everything to have been ready when He brought man on the scene.
The Scripture describes us—the new creation—as partakers of God’s divine nature. This means we’re sharers, partners and participators of the divine nature. We’re entitled to enjoy and benefit from the immense treasures and attributes of God with the exclusion of nothing. Entering and living in His rest is one of such blessings we’ve been called to enjoy. Don’t cheat yourself or allow anyone or circumstance cheat you out of the life you’re called to live. The way to live in God’s rest is by faith in His Word. See yourself the way God sees you. Refuse to compromise the principles of God’s Word, and live a stress-free life.
Matthew 11:28; Psalm 23:1-2
Dear Father, thank you for calling me to a life of glory, victory and rest. I refuse to be moved or worried by the circumstances of this life because all things are mine. I live and abide in perfect rest, peace and joy today, in Jesus’ mighty Name. Amen.
