“I WILL GIVE YOU REST” Says, JESUS



“Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28 (NLT)



For some weeks now we’ve been discussing the Lord’s armor.

Which has been a refreshing daily feast.

However, I want your heart to be fully settled on this:

Yes, we are at war with the evil forces of darkness. However, we are not fighting for victory. We are fighting from and in victory.

Though we wrestle against principalities, powers and rulers of dark places, we are not to be threatened or burdened.

The victory which Christ has brought us is rich with HIS REST!

You don’t have to feel pressured and overwhelmed because you are instructed to put on the whole armor of God and to persevere in prayer.
The armor pieces given to us by the Lord, are evidence of His provision and care for us.
Glory to God!

Whenever people get to think about their relationship with God, they first think of what they have to do for the Lord, or what they think the Lord has to do for them.
Most believers are work-oriented and self-oriented.
Jesus who is God manifested in the flesh, came to show us the delight of God.

God is not essentially interested in what you want to do for Him or what you want. Through Christ Jesus, we see that God wants you to ENJOY HIM!

To enjoy God is to focus on what He SUPPLIES to you.

Read the opening verse again:

Jesus said, “… I will GIVE you REST”.
Jesus didn’t invite you to Himself primarily because of what you will do for Him, but what He will give to you.
“Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis. Simply join your life with mine. Learn my ways and you’ll discover that I’m gentle, humble, easy to please. You will find refreshment and rest in me. For all that I require of you will be pleasant and easy to bear” Matthew 11:28-30 (TPT)
You cannot genuinely share in the delight of the Father when you have not enjoyed what He SUPPLIES to you.
His glory is expressed through you when you enjoy His gifts.

When Jesus said, “I WILL GIVE YOU REST”. He meant it!

The reality is this, as you have already come to Christ, HE HAS GIVEN YOU REST.
When you came into Christ, He didn’t only give you rest; YOU ENTERED HIS REST.
“For the one who has once entered His rest has also rested from [the weariness and pain of] his [human] labors, just as God rested from [those labors uniquely] His own.” Hebrews 4:10 (Amplified)

Whatever you do with the Lord and how you daily live must be rooted and established in the reality of the REST which CHRIST has given to you.

Are you running or waging war in anxiety or in the REST OF JESUS?

We are in the rest of Jesus, therefore enjoy His rest!
His yoke is easy and His burden is light. He is not difficult to please.
Whatever He tells you to do, He is in it with you. He is the loving Father who bears your burdens.

Hallelujah!
DIG DEEPER
(Hebrews 1:3; Hebrews 10:12; Luke 15:20-22; 1 John 5:3; Proverbs 3:17; John 16:33)
 
WE PRAY
 We pray thanking the Lord for the rest that He has given us in Him.
 
BIBLE READING IN THE YEAR 2024
Psalm 65 – 68 
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– I have entered into His rest.

– I have seized from all my struggles and works.

– I am not anxious about the future.

– I have absolute dependence in the supply of the Lord.

– I trust and enjoy the voice of God.

– The Lord leads me daily in the oasis of peace by His voice.

– The Lord is my satisfaction and enjoyment.

– I am not need conscious.

Thank you Lord Jesus!

Many people stress on their self efforts to please the Father but
God is not essentially interested in what you want to do for Him or what you want. Through Christ Jesus, we see that God wants you to ENJOY HIM!

It’s so satisfying to know that the Lord is primarily much interested in what He’s giving to me (or had done for me) rather than what I could do for Him.

This is truly the rest He gives, that we enjoy Him to the full. Surely, He has not just given us rest on every side, He is Himself our rest.
