Reaching out to Christians experiencing mental health problems.

Can we enter into Gods rest?

The book of Hebrews is awesome and I have been thinking about one portion of scripture in particular, as I am convinced that it holds the key to many people’s freedom.

For the word of God is living and active’ this verse tells us that the word of God is alive! The bible has divine life in her words and as we speak them, we are speaking out divine life.

Active’ the word of God is not dormant it is active! Whenever we read these precious words or speak them out, we can have faith that there will be a re-action in us.

I am convinced that every time we speak the word of God, there will be some activity inside of us. We may not see the results immediately and it may be that we need to declare the word out repeatedly in prayer, but if we persevere we will eventually see the fruit of our faith, because God is able to perform all that He has promised.

The first word in these verses is very important: ‘For’ this joins the above quotes to the passages of scripture that went before. These passages tell us that we can enter into the ‘Rest of God’

This is a precious promise for anyone who has been troubled with fears anxiety, or any thoughts that steal our peace.

I pray that you will find the rest of God, for your soul.

  1. Yes! So true. This is where so many of us stop short, I think; we believe that the Word can be encouraging and inspiring, but we don’t believe that it holds very real power. I believe that there is nothing metaphorical about the verse you referenced. John 1:1 tells us that the Word was with God in the beginning, and the Word WAS God. If the Word became flesh, was crucified, died, was buried, and resurrected, then it can only mean that the Word is alive. An incredible thought! Thank you, friend. You have given me MUCH food for thought this morning!

  2. Hey sis, thanx for your comment and I’m so glad that you are blogging again.
    Bless you 🙂
