Do you rest in God?

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." (Matthew 11:28-30)

Are you tired of always feeling defeated? Are you afraid or fearful? Are you to independent upon self or your circumstances? Is everything that you worry over have to do with self? Have you come to Jesus, and asked for that perfect rest?

Wherever Jesus goes there is a rest, as this is not rest in ourselves. Whatever Jesus has promised He shall perform.There is a spiritual rest that we must find, our Spirits are being conformed to that of the Lord. It is the Spirit who gives us rest. This rest has nothing to do with us resting physcially. We need to keep our mind as that of mind of Christ. "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 2:5) When we keep our mind as His we shall find that rest. In this place of resting, there is abiding rest, a deep and growing rest. A resting place the deeper that we go on into His rest. There is no rest far more sweeter. Can one stay in that rest? Yes, I think so, if we keep the mind of Christ continually.

"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed in Thee: because he trusteth in Thee." (Isaiah 26:3)

"And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:7)

"There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God has from His. Let us therefore labor to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief." (Hebrews 4:9-11)

Whose we are and Whom we serve.
