Receive His Rest (Matthew 11:28)

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

Matthew 11:28 (KJV)

Coming to Jesus is a coming to the end of ourselves. Now it is no longer about us struggling and striving to try and make it, but much rather about resting in what He has already done. In Christ everything we need has been made available by His grace; and as we come to trust Him and walk in this by faith, we will see the manifestations of His finished works in our lives.

Grace Builds Us Up (Acts 20:32)

And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

Acts 20:32 (KJV)

Grace always builds us up. Religion tends to be about what we must do in order to earn favor with God, whereas grace is all about what Jesus has already done for us. Each day our practice therefore must be to remind ourselves and to thank God that He has already made available what we need. As we remember our identity in Christ—that we were made righteous in Him—we open ourselves to receiving the inheritance grace has already provided.

God’s Perfect Love (1 John 4:7-9)

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1 John 4:7-9 (KJV)

Everything God has done for us through the finished works of Jesus is rooted in His perfect love for us. To know and experience the love of God, we look to Jesus and receive the fullness of what His grace has made available. In this we will find ourselves blessed and being a blessing.

Confident To Rest (Psalm 116:7)

Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.

Psalm 116:7 (KJV)

Our soul is at rest when we are confident that God is handling everything that concerns us. We rest in our confidence that God has already made available what we need, and out of this assurance will we see His goodness showing up in our lives. God works when we are at a place of peace.

Super-Abundant Grace (1 Timothy 1:14)

And the grace (unmerited favor and blessing) of our Lord [actually] flowed out superabundantly and beyond measure for me, accompanied by faith and love that are [to be realized] in Christ Jesus.

1 Timothy 1:14 (AMP)

When we receive a revelation of God’s grace as His unmerited favor and blessing being made available to us, our faith increases as a result as we come to recognize and embrace His love for us. Rather than performing to try to get God to bless us, we find ourselves resting in His love and in His finished works. And out from this place do we move ever more fully towards the manifestation of His promises.

Receive His Rest (Matthew 11:28)

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

Matthew 11:28 (KJV)

Coming to Jesus is a coming to the end of ourselves. Now it is no longer about struggling and striving to try and make it, but much rather about resting in what He has already done. In Christ everything we need has been made available by His grace; and as we come to trust Him and walk by faith, we will see the manifestations of His finished works in our lives.

The Power Of A Thankful Heart (Psalm 100:4)

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

Psalm 100:4 (KJV)

We are called to practice thanksgiving as a way of life. When we realize that there is always something to thank God for, we will naturally find ourselves giving Him the praise that is due to His name. Even in the midst of a challenge or a difficult time, we can thank God that He has already provided for us the way out. Friend, when we know our God and His goodness, we really cannot help but be thankful. And so let us rejoice today that there is enormous power in always having a thankful heart!

Abundance Of Grace (Romans 5:17)

For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

Romans 5:17 (KJV)

Righteousness is a gift we receive, not a reward we work for. When we receive this unspeakable gift through our faith in the finished works of Jesus, we enter into the abundance of God’s grace—His unmerited favor. His grace being abundant means it is sufficient to wipe out all of our past mistakes, and to supply us with everything that is needed in order for us to live a successful and overcoming life.

Remain Persistent (Galatians 6:9)

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Galatians 6:9 (KJV)

We are not fainting when we remain persistent in doing the right thing, even if it seems like nothing is happening. We maintain our confession of God’s Word, we believe that the finished works of Jesus Christ have already made available to us what we need, and we keep looking for opportunities to be a blessing. We may be certain that before long we will see the breakthroughs we have been looking for!
