In His Presence

Posted on Posted in Expectations, Promises, Trust

                                                     … there is rest!

 
We are always looking to God to do things in our lives,
… to bless us, heal us, strengthen us
However it is not about what God can do,
… but what we have not done!

      God saw everything that He had made,
      and indeed it was very good.
      Genesis 1:31

      God ended His work which He had done,
      and He rested…
      Genesis 2:2

What more is there for God to do?
Can sin, sickness, infirmities, weakness or even fear
… stand or prosper in God’s presence?
No!
So what does God need to do?
Nothing!

This tells us that in God, in His presence, in His rest,
there is nothing for God to do!
For us therefore to truly benefit
… from God’s promises, and through His will,
WE need to do something … realizing that in God it is all done!

What do we need to do?
Enter His presence, His gates with thanksgiving and praise…
Psalm 100:4

      For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased
      from his works as God did from His.
      Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest…
      Hebrews 4:10-11

So, do what Jesus suggested …

      But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,
      and all these things shall be added to you.
      Matthew 6:33
