Continue Rested

Peace and rest. These are two well known words that are ‘little known’ in this busy season of life.

Man has lost the ability to truly rest.

You speak of peace during the seasonal celebration of My Birth, but is it mere words or a representation of your life?

To have total peace–

  • Your life is measured.
  • Your priorities are in order.
  • You are surrendered to My will and direction for your life.

For I understand your ways and I see your life mapped out before you. I see what you, yourself, do not see. This is why I ask you to trust. If you respect Me, and trust that I will lead you on the best path, you will remain rested in My decisions, as I direct your life.

“Teach me to do thy will, for thou art my God! Let thy good spirit lead me on a level path!” Psalms 143:10

You are not My puppet; I don’t wish to control–

I AM your mentor.

I gather your thoughts–we discuss them together. We make a plan and, ultimately, a decision. But if one doesn’t ‘see the way’, how can another follow?

Won’t they both wander aimlessly?

“–Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit? A disciple is not above his teacher, but every one when he is fully taught will be like his teacher.” Luke 6:39-40

I see the way–will you follow?

“I bless the Lord who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me.” Psalms 16:7

“Thou dost show me the path of life; in thy presence there is fulness of joy, in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.” Psalms 16:11

Stop struggling to find your path.

Rest in My decision–have peace that I won’t let you miss a step. You won’t start over, for you never leave behind what you have learned.

You ‘continue’–when you are ‘rested’.

“And to whom did he swear that they should never enter his rest, but to those who were disobedient? So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief. Therefore, while the promise of entering his rest remains, let us fear lest any of you be judged to have failed to reach it.

For good news came to us just as to them; but the message which they heard did not benefit them, because it did not meet with faith in the hearers. For we who have believed enter that rest–” Hebrews 3:18-4:3a

“So then there remains a sabbath rest for the people of God; for whoever enters God’s rest also ceases from his labors as God did from his. Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, that no one fall by the same sort of disobedience.” Hebrews 4:9-11

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” John 14:27

“And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful.” Colossians 3:15

“Make me to know thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me, for thou art the God of my salvation; for thee I wait all the day long.” Psalms 25:4-5

“Teach me to do thy will, for thou art my God! Let thy good spirit lead me on a level path!” Psalms 143:10

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV
