“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... ” Hebrews 4:10–11
The Promised Land was a place of rest that God had promised His people. Yet God’s people wandered in the wilderness for 40 years because they refused to believe He had given them a land where everything had already been prepared—the work was finished. They could not believe that God had given them a land full of good things to enjoy, a land which just flowed with His abundant supply.
Today, there are believers who still cannot believe that the work of Jesus is truly complete and finished. They are trying to complete a completed work, finish a finished work and defeat a defeated devil. There are believers today who are always working to try and produce their own healing, success and victory.
God wants us to stop trying and start trusting in His love for us. He wants us to stop working and struggling, and start resting and believing in His grace. The only “work” left for us to do is to enter His rest. God wants us to rest inwardly and believe that the work is done because it is a finished work. Today, let’s enter His rest. Let’s enjoy sitting together with Christ in the heavenly places, then we will run and not be weary! (Isaiah 40:31)
