Enter into God’s Rest
On the first day of this month, we noted that we are living in God’s time which incorporates His completeness, mercy, and rest. We all need to be of one mind and be complete in God.
In Christ dwells the fullness of the Godhead, therefore, we are complete in Him. The work that God has begun in you, He will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ when He returns.
Even though there will be trials in our lives, they will make us patient so that we will be complete in Him.
When you love the Lord, you will obey His words. There are many born again Christians who are spirit filled and appeared righteous, but they are disobedient to the word of God.
God is not pleased when His children are not genuine. Obedience and humility are characteristics of Christ that we need to emulate.
The Lord will bless you with His covenant and mercy when you worship Him in spirit and truth and is obedient to Him.
Then Solomon stood before the altar of the Lord in the presence of all the assembly of Israel, and spread out his hands toward heaven; and he said: “Lord God of Israel, there is no God in heaven above or on earth below like You, who keep Your covenant and mercy with Your servants who walk before You with all their hearts. (1 Kings 8:22-23)
The generation of Israelites who saw the miracles and mighty power of God but hardened their hearts in disobedience and rebelled against the Lord all perished in the wilderness. They did not enter into God’s rest neither did they enter the promise land.
The promised land represents God’s rest during that time because when they inherited the country, they obtained peace from the enemy.
There is a spiritual rest of God that we all need to enter but only through obedience. When you believe the word of God, you will obey Him. When you enter God’s rest, you will cease from your labor as God did from His.
