Hebrews 4:3 “For only we who believe can enter His rest …”
When one believes another person’s word, they consider those words to be true. They are real and can be relied upon. When we believe God’s Word to be true, it says we enter into His rest. It’s a place where we are not fearful or anxious. It’s like He says, “relax, I’ve got it handled”.
We live everyday believing that God doesn’t let anything happen to us that isn’t in His control. That even though there may be some things we don’t always understand, He is there with us and He will turn it around for our good. That because He is a God of purpose, everything we go through is part of His plan for our lives to bring us towards our destiny. That even though there may be times we are weak, He is always strong so that even if we let go, He never does.
To rest in God, is to always be in a position of leaning on Him, relying on Him. He is the air that you breathe. He is your life. He is your peace. He is your everything!
That’s why His rest is only for those who believe.
