Absolute Rest in Christ (March 16th, 2019)

"There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His. Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience." (Hebrews 4:9-11)



The life that Christ has given to you is one of absolute rest and peace. It makes no difference how dire things get or the challenges you face-- your victory is guaranteed! You and Christ are one, and because you're in union with Him, you can never be disadvantaged. You're triumphant always and in every place, you're unshakable.


An old songwriter once said, "He never said you'll only see sunshine, He never said there'd be no rain, but He surely promised us a heart full of singing." In other words, come what may, you're a victor. Some people aren't sure what life has in store for them, they live in uncertainty. But in Christ, there's assurance.


(Romans 8:35-37)

"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: 'For Your sake we are killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.' Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us."

Refuse to be stressed over anything, because you're in God's rest, and you've ceased from life's struggles.


(Hebrews 4:10)

"...he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His."

Don't allow any person or any circumstance to cheat you out of the life of absolute rest in Christ that you're called to live-- that's a life of peace with prosperity. And remember, the way to sustain yourself in this glorious life is living by faith in the Word, applying the Word in all that you do. Hallelujah!


Prayer:

Dear Father, I thank You for Your immeasurable love for me. You finished the works from the foundation of the world, and called me into Your rest. I'm in Your rest now, living in the peace of prosperity. I refuse to struggle or fret over anything, as I enjoy my triumphant life in Christ, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
