So then, there is still awaiting a full and complete Sabbath rest reserved for the people of God. Hebrews 4:9
"Hurry involves the idea that something is out of control and we must take control." Dallas Willard
Jesus didn't rush because He knew our Abba Father was good and in control.
So, what is our Sabbath rest?
Something that Jesus transformed for us at the cross was the Sabbath. The Sabbath went from being only a day of the week to being a lifestyle!
Jesus said that man wasn't made for the Sabbath but that the Sabbath was made for man.
Our life is now one of rest in Him, the Creator.
The One who is the author and finisher of our faith.
The God who works in us to will and do of His good pleasure.
We can cease our striving because it is Jesus living His life through the unique way He has created us.
There needn't be any hurry because He alone controls the outcomes in our life.
In what ways do you doubt that God is good?
What are the signs in your life that reveal a need to rest?
What fruit in your life would God bear through you if He was allowed full access to you?
Lord, may we remember there are no accounts of You rushing anywhere at any time. You entrusted Your life entirely to our Father. May we trust in Him as You by entering our Sabbath rest. Amen
