Trust and Rest

WS-devo_PMSGod’s promise that we may enter his place of rest still stands. We are afraid that some of you think you won’t enter his place of rest. We have heard the same Good News that your ancestors heard. But the message didn’t help those who heard it in the past because they didn’t believe. We who believe are entering that place of rest. Somewhere in Scripture God has said this about the seventh day: “On the seventh day God rested from all his work.” (Hebrews 4:1-4 GW) God's rest--a ceasing from our own efforts at goodness--is hard for us to accept. Why? We don't believe it. Surely God doesn't just give us His kindness and goodness without doing something for it. He does. He will. If only, we trust Him for it...daily. ©Word-Strong_2014
