REST

1 Kings 5:3-4 (4) – But now the LORD my God has given me rest on every side, and there is no adversary or disaster. (NIV)

There are several times that the Bible mentions rest, beginning with the story of creation in the Book of Genesis. We see that God worked for six days and rested on the seventh day. The same could be said of God’s wish for His children. That is, as you work in line with divine purpose, the Almighty wants you to experience rest, a sound mind, and restoration.

There are many cases in the Scriptures that show that God can establish His rest in any situation. In today’s Bible reading, after Solomon became king, he talked about the problems his father had to deal with. He said that his father couldn’t build the temple for God until his enemies were defeated. However, King Solomon said concerning his tenure that “God has given me rest on every side, and there is no adversary or disaster.”

Solomon’s statement means that the enemies’ antics and other problematic issues must be dealt with before you can enter your restful season. Those circumstances that have hindered you from living a Godly life, fulfilling your purpose, and prospering will be a thing of the past when you key into the realm of rest.

Beloved, no one can enter into divine rest without first being redeemed. Redemption is crucial to experiencing rest. In the cases of David and Solomon, they both pleased God and honoured Him. For you, you can be redeemed through Christ and His finished work on the cross. Make Him your priority and live a holy, faith-driven, and prayer-filled lifestyle. By doing these, you will live in the reality of God’s rest.
