Come To Jesus In Absolute Trust.

Exodus_33-14-2: And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.

Exodus_33-14-2: And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28 (KJV)

The time of waiting on the Lord, is also a time of resting in Him. Resting in God is not a passive activity. You actively rest in God not in the spirit of qui sera sera (whatever will be ,will be) but with a knowing that He is in absolute control.

Jesus said, come unto Me. When He made the call, He made it knowing that He has all you need. He did not say “come and let us see what we can do”; that is the language of man. Man can promise and fail. Man can promise with a good intention and unforeseen circumstances come up and make the promise impossible to fulfill. Man can mock, jeer and laugh at you then pretend to render you a help. Man can do all sorts of things but not God. When He said “Come” it is because He has all it takes to turn that situation around. He has all you need for the miracle you need to come to pass.

When He says come, He truly wants you to come. Don’t think of qualifying for the blessing, because He has qualified you. Don’t think of being deserving of the miracle. He paid the full price for you. All He asks is that you come, confident in His ability to save, deliver and set free. Come to Him in absolute trust. Don’t come with a plan B: if God fails, then I will …. No God cannot fail. It is absolutely impossible for Him to fail. Come to Him in faith, come without wavering and He will give you rest.

When God gives you rest, there is nothing the devil wants to throw at you that can get to you, because you are resting confidently in God. No matter the challenge, no matter the obstacle, no matter how long it has lasted, just trust God today and He will give you total rest. You will not be denied. Your desires shall be granted, I will hear your testimony.
Amen!

Read: 1 Kings 13:7-14
7 And the king said unto the man of God, Come home with me, and refresh thyself, and I will give thee a reward.
8 And the man of God said unto the king, If thou wilt give me half thine house, I will not go in with thee, neither will I eat bread nor drink water in this place:
9 For so was it charged me by the word of the LORD, saying, Eat no bread, nor drink water, nor turn again by the same way that thou camest.
10 So he went another way, and returned not by the way that he came to Bethel.
11 Now there dwelt an old prophet in Bethel; and his sons came and told him all the works that the man of God had done that day in Bethel: the words which he had spoken unto the king, them they told also to their father.
12 And their father said unto them, What way went he? For his sons had seen what way the man of God went, which came from Judah.
13 And he said unto his sons, Saddle me the ass. So they saddled him the ass: and he rode thereon,
14 And went after the man of God, and found him sitting under an oak: and he said unto him, Art thou the man of God that camest from Judah? And he said, I am.

2-Corinthians_12-9: And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me

2-Corinthians_12-9: And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me

In today’s Bible reading, we have a very sad story of a young prophet sent by God to the city of Bethel with strict instructions. After he delivered the message, he took a different route homewards as instructed by God. But along the way, he felt danger had passed and so he decided to take a rest. While taking his rest, an old prophet came by, lied to him and convinced him to return with him. He obeyed this old prophet and eventually met his death. If only he had delayed his rest, the false prophet would have come looking for him without finding him. Just as it happened to this young prophet, resting too soon has terminated the Christian race of so many believers. In some races, we sometimes see a contestant that is running so fast, leaving other contestants far behind. For the contestant ahead, there is always the temptation to relax, reduce speed and to take the rest of the journey easy, due to a false sense of having won the race already. Many a contestant has yielded to such temptations and got the shock of a lifetime. You will do yourself a lot of good to know that on earth, while on our way to Heaven, we have no resting place. For this reason, Hebrews 4:9 says:
“There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.”

What the devil or your flesh is suggesting to you as a rest is actually meant to activate your spiritual death warrant. Our rest in Heaven is eternal, and this is partly to compensate us for the no-rest race we have to run on earth. If you want rest, wait until you get to Heaven.

Sometime ago, I visited Australia. While there, a brother shared a testimony that made me weep inside. This old man testified that some time ago, a particular man of God who was highly anointed came to Australia. People brought their dead and they were raised back to life. Within one week, there were ambulances bringing in dead people to the crusade. I could recall this particular man of God. He started very well and was mightily used of God, but along the line, he began to bring in some strange doctrines. He said all that was needed now was only faith; there was no more need for fasting, holiness, etc. He did not end up very well. Beloved, since you have started the race, focus on it and continue to run. Receive all the grace that you can muster from the Lord and continue running the race. Refuse any proposal to slow down or rest, as this is meant to terminate your race.

Father, let me never encounter the rest that would terminate my race to Heaven, in Jesus’ Name.

There is an incredible sense of peace that comes from learning how to rest in the Lord

There is an incredible sense of peace that comes from learning how to rest in the lord

It’s worth the wait.

When the storms of life hit, we are often tempted to run for cover. When they continue indefinitely, we struggle to find encouragement. When the rain and the wind gather strength until they turn into what seems to be a hurricane, we find ourselves saying, “I can’t do this any longer,” The truth is this: we can’t, but God can.

He is the only One who can help us victoriously fight through the battles of life. Nothing can provide the type of strength that He provides, especially when we feel overwhelmed and discouraged. He stands beside us, and He never retreats.

Daniel never worried about being cast into the lion’s den. He knew that the Lord would provide the help and protection he needed to make it through the night. Some of the people who read these words are fighting a battle with a life-threatening disease. It is an unseen enemy from a human standpoint but not from God’s. He knows exactly what we are facing and how it is affecting our lives.

There is an incredible sense of peace that comes from learning how to rest in the Lord and allow Him to take care of your troubles. This does not mean that you abandon the fight and just give up trying. It means that you shift the focus of your effort from yourself to God. This is where the true victory is gained.

The apostle Paul faced many life-threatening situations. At one point, he debated whether it was better to ask God to allow him to go home to heaven where he would have unending peace and glory in the presence of Christ or to continue living the earthly life God had given him. Paul chose the latter. As much as he longed to see the Lord in heaven, he loved having the opportunity here to tell others about God’s unending, unconditional love and forgiveness.

The challenges you face today is directly related to the joy you will experience in the future.

Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28)

Little Chukwuemeka is a very good example of how kids think. He doesn’t ask his parents where his morning, afternoon or evening meal will come from. Neither does he fret over his clothing or shelter. He assumes all these things are his natural right and true to this they are.

It is ironic that most of us adults do not see God in this way. We end up doing all the worrying for God. Jesus said “Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me. For I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest upon your souls”.

The lesson here is simple and straight forward; the rest Our Lord Jesus Christ is talking about is not just our salvation, it covers every area of our lives, our finance, health and family. Let us learn to rest in the Lord. We can’t worry and “add a cubit to our height”. The carrier of the load is not complaining, why do you worry? Peter said; cast your burden upon the Lord. Why not pray and trust Him!

Stop carrying God’s load, He is not complaining!

May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
