Hebrews 4:9-11 KJV: There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour, therefore, to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
Before Man’s first action, God provided rest for man. And that rest is in Christ. Only unbelief can keep you from entering that rest which God has provided for you in Christ. God does not need your effort to please him. He wants to take over your weaknesses. He said without me you can do nothing. John 15:5. There is absolutely nothing you can do without him, HENCE THE REST he called you to enter.
Today’s text shows that he who enters the rest provided by God will cease from his own works… Works of the flesh. We must trust him completely that he is now in charge of every aspect of our lives. No need to worry about anything. Simply trust him.
Declare to yourself loud: Christ is my rest. Hallelujah.
Heavenly Father, I give you praise for the wonders of your work. In you, I lack nothing. Hallelujah. Amen.
