TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 4:1
Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.
Throughout the Bible, you will find scriptures telling you, “Do not fear.” But our scripture for today is an exception. This is one of the rare times you are being told to fear something. Be afraid that you might not enter into God’s rest. There is only one thing that will keep you from this rest, and that is unbelief.
Failure to believe that God loves you will cause you to be reluctant to hand over your troubles to Him. God’s plan for you is to live a life of rest. Entering into His rest is a conscious decision. When you are resting, you are not concerned about anything.
You can rest knowing that you do not have to face your troubles alone. God is partnered with you in your problems. But you must participate in your rest. Believe that God cares about you. When a problem comes your way, refuse to carry it like a burden.
As quickly as it comes, by faith, throw it up to God in prayer. He is your Capable Catcher. And when it comes to problems, He will never miss, and He never drops the ball.
I am partnered with the Problem Solver, and I refuse to be intimidated by the cares of this life. No detail about my life escapes God’s attention. He is concerned about what concerns me. He is capable, and He cares for me; therefore, I will rest.
