Why Not Rest?

As we have already passed the halfway point of our month of rest, I thought it would be a great idea to go back over our verses, and sow them again into our spirits. We want to receive that word about rest, holy, sacred, Sabbath rest that God instituted and withdrew, but Jesus offered again and we don’t to refuse.

Sp please read them, write them, save the pin or post for later, go back over the month if you like. You can read many more on my blog, or someone else’s or from any reputable ministry. However, you learn about rest, why not rest? It is an important study for believers to receive from God.

These are the basic ones and there are more i am sure, I will be sure to add any I come across to help you out. Though many other verses like Psalm 46:10, translate, the be still into a sort of rest, a needy and vulnerable, going limp before the Lord, when you can give Him your cares, let go. You can rest and why not. God was angry when people didn’t and look what Jesus did and He offers it, ” Come unto me. ”

My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest. Exodus 33:14

Rest in the Lord and wait patiently on Him. Psalm 37:7

Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from Him. Psalm 62:5

God has told His people, “Here is a place of rest; let the weary rest here. This is a place of quiet rest.” But they would not listen. Isaiah 28:12

Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:29

Since the promise of entering His rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it. Hebrews 4:1

For anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from His. Hebrews 4:10

Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience. Hebrews 4:11 Some translations say unbelief.

If you are studying rest with me, individually or as a group, even a Bible study. Soak in these verses and be sure to look for others with a similar tone. You may even want to dig into other translations and Greek and Hebrew. The New Testament is translated from Greek while Jesus would have spoken Hebrew and Aramaic.
