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.

Pray for the peace of Israel.

I had a fantastic evening praying  for Israel with a group of Christian friends tonight. This group runs at the home of a lovely couple from my church, Chris and Karen.

While we were praying, I was reminded about the many times over the past fifty years that Israels enemies have attacked her and how the world has looked on expecting sure defeat and perhaps even extinction for the Jewish people because they have been so outnumbered and outgunned,only for the whole world to look on in astonishment as Israel has overcame her enemies, time and time again.

Not many people are aware that American military strategists, who study military campaigns to see if they can learn lessons for American forces, have stopped studying Israels wars. They have concluded that the wars involving Israel make no military sense.

I firmly believe the reason for this is because Israel and the Jewish people, had a promise from God that when they were returned to their land, that He would protect them from their enemies.

The thing about this is, Christians also have the promise that when we are attacked from our enemy, God will lead us to victory.

God does not fight for us, but rather He fights along side us until we have learned to defeat our enemy.  We don’t have to worry if we seem to be in jaws of defeat and extinction, God does not change His mind about His promise just because we are in a dark place.

He fulfils His promise because He does not lie and if He says he will do something, we can rely on Him to do it.

Shalom.
