Remember to Rest

30
Did you remember to rest? Today is the Sabbath day according to many. For others, the Sabbath day is considered Saturday. Regardless of which day you consider the Sabbath day to be, have you remembered this week in your life to rest?

Today I am resting. This is rare for me. Even on days I accomplish very little, I am rarely at rest. I aspire to learn to rest – to rest in the Lord. I am reminded of the Book of Hebrews in the Bible, which for me explains why I have persisted for so long in my difficulty in learning to rest. The children of Israel could not enter into God’s rest for a specific reason. Unbelief.

When I struggle with fear, I am not at rest. Sadly, even as a follower of Jesus, I have struggled with fear for far too long in my life. As I seek more than ever to learn to walk in God’s love rather than beleaguering fear, I realize that resting is all about trusting God. I am excited to learn to rest. Most importantly, I am excited to learn to walk in God’s love as I place my trust in Him. How about you? Have you remembered to rest?

Isa 26:3  “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”


Heb 4:1  “Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. 
Heb 4:2  For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. 
Heb 4:3  For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. 
Heb 4:4  For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. 
Heb 4:5  And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. 
Heb 4:6  Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: 
Heb 4:7  Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. 
Heb 4:8  For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. 
Heb 4:9  There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. 
Heb 4:10  For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. 
Heb 4:11  Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.”
