ENTER by Lee Gossett
Today, I’d like to share a word about “entering,” but not in the way you may think. What does it mean to enter into God’s rest? We have to stop trying to do things in our own efforts; that is the only way we can enter (His promises). That means choosing to depend on God alone for ALL things, to trust all things to Him, and simply to yield to what He says in Scripture.
PSALM 62:8 Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge (NIV).
If you’ve not learned already, we cannot live this life “alone.” Many people think they can, but because of their lack of trust and unbelief, chances are things didn’t turn out quite the way they hoped or expected. Believe me, when you are going through a season of testing, the enemy will throw everything at you to make you stumble and fall. I pray today for those who have major decisions to make whether it’s a career or move or a decision affecting your overall health, that you would take time to “sleep on it” (enter into God’s rest) and find God’s peace in the midst of your circumstances. Find God’s rest by putting your faith and total trust in Him knowing that you cannot “enter” by your own efforts, but through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
PROVERBS 3:5-6 With all your heart you must trust the Lord and not your own judgment. Always let him lead you, and he will clear the road for you to follow (CEV).
