Hello dear friend,
The world we are living in is full of worries, failures, hurt and because of which we are not living the life God has called us to live.
One of the greatest thing that God wants us to have is REST. Jesus said, “Come unto me all who labor and heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
Jesus gave an invitation to whole world saying, Come… and I will give you…. Rest!
The majority of people live a restless life because they have either not come to Jesus or Jesus has not given them rest. Jesus is God, therefore cannot lie. God is not a man that He should lie.
There are few people who come to Jesus, but still continue to live a tiresome and weary life.
God wants you to rest, and enjoy this life. God enjoys us when we are at rest, like a father enjoys his kid the most when the baby is asleep.
The word rest means to relax and refresh.
There are three things we should rest in;
Rest in the finished work of Jesus on the cross:
We as the children of God should rest in the finished work of the Jesus on the cross.
Rest = Knowing + believing + thanking.
Know what God has done for you in Jesus and believe it with all your heart and give thanks to God in advance for everything he had done.
Jesus has done everything for us to live a happy and blessed life! Rest in the finished work of the cross of Jesus Christ.
Resting in the promises of God:
When God promises you something, let not the situation and trails overtake and over power the promise that God has given you.
Let God’s word have a final say over your life. No matter what you are going through let His word be your stand.
Everything in this world may fail, but God’s word never fails. Hold on to it. Rest in the promises of God.
Resting in the presence of God:
The reason we don’t enjoy the rest is because we are not where God has placed us or we are not where God wants us to be.
The presence of God is the best and safest place we could ever live, and God has given us grace to live with Him always. Sometimes we are just ignorant about it, if we know who is with you, we would live and peaceful and joyful life.
The power of God and the blessings are found in the presence of God. Dwell in His Presence.
I have listed 3 basic and important things that we should rest in to live a blessed and happy life, if you have a 4th point you can add to the list.
I pray that you will find rest in Jesus, as you look to Him and to His promises and run into His Presence.
God Bless you.
