The Resting Place

" Therefore since it still remains for some to enter that rest, and since those who formerly had the good news proclaimed to them did not go in because of their disobedience, God again set a certain day, calling it “Today.” This he did when a long time later he spoke through David, as in the passage already quoted: 'Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts'. For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day. There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his. " (Hebrews 4:6-10, NIV)


Often faith is pictured as something we "work up", something strived over...but in these beautiful verses above faith looks REST. And seeing that God rests - we, justlike our Father, should be resting too.

Of course there's many things to worry & freak out over ...but our God? He can be trusted. And He's worked it all out. We no longer have to strive, fear, or manipulate. We can instead operate from a place of love. A place of faith.  A place of assurance that is,  knowing we've won because KingJesus is Victorious . How can we not rest?

This is faith.
