The promise of resting in him pulls us on to God's goal for us.
amen! God's word for us today is RESTING in him. resting means we will TAKE HIS WORD AS HE SAID and keep LIVING that IT IS TRUE. if it is true then we have NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT! here's the rest of the passage (vv.2-3): We received the same promises as those people in the wilderness, but the promises didn't do them a bit of good because they didn't receive the promises with faith. If we believe, though, we'll experience that state of resting.
amen amen amen! God we BELIEVE you, and that makes us SECURE in you, gives us the PEACE that makes us TRULY REST. thank you lord!
