Sabbath Rest

10 Sep

Enter into a child-like trust: Sabbath rest

There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God;  for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his.  Hebrews 4:9.10

The word for own in Hebrews 4:10 is auto in the Greek and means:  Himself, herself, themselves, or itself.  When we have rested from the works of the self, we can enter that lovely Sabbath-rest that God intends for us to have.

When we enter that rest, a life of rest, we have learned to trust God.  In other words, we can truly say, “I believe that God keeps me every hour in His mighty power.”  My heart longs for that reality!
