Gods reputation.

I remember I was lying on my bed praying, when I suddenly had the revelation that God cared what I thought of Him.  I could hardly comprehend this!

I was always concerned about what God thought of me, but finding out that He cared about what I thought of Him overwhelmed me with love.

Only after this did I begin to notice how important it was to God that people knew Him for who he really is. I began to see that some of the great men in scripture would pray that God would remember his promises to Israel and that He should consider what the enemies of Israel would say about Him if he forgot His promises. God always answered because He really does care what we think about Him.

I was reading the book of Isaiah yesterday, chapter 62 and was struck by verses 6 and 7 that say “You, who remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves; give Him no rest until He establishes and makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth”

Reading this verse it is evident that God is saying that we should remind Him of his promises and give Him no rest until he establishes the promise He has made! It feels disrespectful to even think this way about our Father, but this is in His word and He wants us to do this.

Jesus says something similar in a parable on prayer in Luke: 11, verses 5 to 10.  We are again encouraged to persist in prayer, to keep asking and knocking.

I our breakthrough our healing our victory is right before us. If it’s promised in the Word of God and we cry out to God for the fulfilment of the promise, God has staked His reputation on the fact that He will hear our prayer and if we fulfil our side of the bargain He will fulfil His.

I can’t help thinking that the more fervent we are in demanding the fulfilment of promise, the more we will see miracles happen.

It’s what God is looking for.

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.
