Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 12:28 (KJV)
Jesus gives us rest because when we enter into Christ, we enter into a finished work. The moment we put our faith in Jesus as Lord of our lives, all things pertaining to life and godliness are made available to us. Our task is not to struggle and to work hard to try and get God to bless us, but to live each day open and receptive for the blessings we already have in Him to manifest in our lives.
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
John 17:3 (KJV)
Salvation at its very core is to know God. As we live in intimate fellowship with Jesus through letting His Word abide in our hearts, we will see the fruits of salvation showing up in our lives. The fruits of salvation include healing, deliverance, soundness, godly prosperity and peace.
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
Hebrews 10:23 (KJV)
To “profess” can also be translated to “confess.” We are to keep confessing our faith in the promises of God, our hearts assured by the fact that He who made the promise is faithful. So let our words be filled with faith, and let us declare boldly what God has said about us. He has called us to live victorious in every area of life!
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
James 1:5 (NKJV)
Wisdom is the ability to use knowledge rightly. It is a grace gift from God and it is freely available to us. Trust today that with the Holy Spirit’s help you will know what to do at all times as you walk in God’s perfect will for your life.
