Strive to Enter into HIS Rest - Home Group Bible Study Series #2
by Marijo Phelps  
2/08/2011 / Devotionals


God created the world in six days and on the seventh day He rested. There are many thoughts on what this actually means but the fact remains that God, the very creator of the world rested. His example is something every believer should make it a point to follow. Life is full of things to keep us busy, probably too many things if truth were told. Maybe one thing which should be penciled into our Day timers or typed into our computer calendars each day is time out, simply to rest.

Hebrews 4:9-16 9 There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. 10For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.

Our "task" as believers is:
1. Surrender to God
2. Faith placed in God

Cease from our own works and "Lean not to your own understanding", taking time to rest in our Lord.
Proverbs 3:4-6 4 And so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man. 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. (NKJV)

Cease from trying to change ourselves, allow HIM to change us. The battle is the Lord's. We must surrender the reigns of our life. HE knows how it is to be done.

Do we trust Him? Will we obey Him? That is our "job" - to trust and obey.

Isaiah 50:10" Who among you fears the LORD? Who obeys the voice of His Servant? Who walks in darkness And has no light? Let him trust in the name of the LORD and rely upon his God." (NKJV)

Lord, let me be of a clean heart reveal to me my hidden uncleanness. Let my heart be right with You, obedient, trusting and obeying my Lord Jesus.
AMEN

He will help us to accomplish this resting in Him. All we need to is ask for His help and hold our arms in the air for our heavenly Daddy to lift us up. Let's try this during this very week.
