Life sometimes may resemble interval runs or marathons, leaving us breathless and waiting for that 20 second rest. The Bible, however, talks about a wonderous, miraculous rest we experience. This rest is a rest we can enter into. It is a perpetual, neverending rest we can actually live in! It is a creation of God.
How can we enter in? It is simply by believing in Christ. It is when we cease living according to our Strength and realizing Christ has already won it all. His grace is sufficient for us in every situation!
Matt 11:28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
Hebrews 4:3 For we who have believed (adhered to and trusted in and relied on God) do enter that rest.
Hebrews 4:10 For he who has once entered [God’s] rest also has ceased from [the weariness and pain] of human labors, just as God rested from those labors peculiarly His own.
