SELAH Daily Devotions!
Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief” (Heb. 4:11)
There is a certain ‘place’ that every human, believer or unbeliever, inevitably seeks to inhabit. However, you can’t locate it on Map Quest, Google or GPS. Given all of the sophisticated technological advancements of this 2lst Century, amazingly, it can’t be seen by telescope, detected by satellite nor heard by electronic ultra sonic sound systems. You can’t travel there walking, running, swimming, driving or riding in a bus, train, plane, cruise liner, submarine, rocket or battle ship!
Nevertheless, many a lifetime is spent meandering through days and nights pursuing it! Unfortunately, few ever get there. Some get closer than others only to be left drenched in disappointment!! For reasons unbeknownst to them, before they’re able to get a firm grasp, some way and some how, ‘it’ escapes to just beyond reach! Many have sought for it at the pinnacle of corporate, academia or entertainment world. Ultimately ascertaining that despite the success, accolades, notoriety, wealth and privileges of the elite, there yet remains this insatiable unfulfilled inner-quest seated in the pit of their soul!
Where is this place that continues to evade so many a desperately wandering soul?
In case you haven’t figured it out, it’s called ‘REST’! And the reason so many fail to reach it, is because it is not a place but a person; and His Name is JESUS!
According to these Scriptures: “And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?” (Heb. 3:18)
“Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief” (Heb. 4:6)
Apparently, that which is impossible to man is always possible to God! (Ref. Matthew 19:26)
Didjaheardat? Astonisingly, the very moment anyone places their ABSOLUTE trust in The Saving Grace of The Lord Jesus Christ, they have finally arrived, safe , sound and secure, at their Destination—REST!
What an awesome privilege our Heavenly Father has endowed those who desire and depend solely upon His assistance, (above all else) presenting their case before The Majestic Throne of Him Who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above and beyond anything they dare ask or imagine, confidently releasing their cares, anxiety, fears, doubts and unbelief in The Hands of Unrelenting Loving-Kindness and Unlimited Grace!
Beloved, He Who has sworn by GODSELF is FAITHFUL AND TRUE! (Rev. 19:11) Hence, when you place your personal trust in HIS WORD, you cannot be defeated and you will never be denied! For greater is HE that is in YOU than he that’s in this world! (Ref. 1 John 4:4)
So do what you can! Pray about anything; trust God for everything and LEAVE THE REST TO JESUS! #GOTIT?? Aaawwwwmmmaaaazzzzzin!
Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
