Rest

When our God completed the creation of this world, it is said that He rested.

This is not a rest from weariness, but simply declaring that there was no more to do; creation was finished!

Our Lord Jesus entered into His rest, He also hath ceased from His works, as the Father did from His (Hebrews 4:10).

He cried, “It is finished,” and the work of redemption was done!

Let us labor to enter into THAT REST!

Cease from fretting, doubting, and rest in Him as an infant rests in his mother’s arms.

The more we learn of His love, His sufficiency, and His exaltation (for we are in Him) the greater the rest. For there is no more to do; we are accepted in the Beloved.
