'Let us therefore make every effort to enter that rest' (Heb. 4:11)
The Lord promised rest to His people as He delivered them out of Egypt. Entering God's rest happens when we believe and entirely rely in His promises, assured of their fulfilment. 'For anyone who enters God's rest also rests from his own work' Heb 4:10. This spiritual rest happens as we remain still in His finished work. No longer struggling and fighting in our own strength, we trust the battle to the Lord so we can do His work that brings hope. His labour produces good fruit and provides us with a promising future and a blessed eternity.
In His rest, we are usable, as we cease worrying about ourselves, no longer overly occupied with health conditions, finances, jobs and other cares of this world. His rest focuses on 'life' that comes through Him and not the false peace found in the world. God has already taken care of every situation of our lives. But when we do not let Him have authority and try to deal with things in our own way, we will not receive the assurance and working of His promises.
During this pandemic, many have experienced difficult situations and suffering. Do not fear. No matter our circumstances, we can enter His rest. Combine your hearing of the Word with faith and receive His promises. For the Word of God is living and active. He knows our heart. He knows our situation, our worries and our anxieties. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. The promise of entering His rest still stands. Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts. For whoever puts his hope in the Lord is never put to shame.
