The Rest

posted in: Daily Stream | 0

Hebrews 4:10-11 (KJV)
For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.
Let us LABOUR therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

Question: pastor, I read yesterday’s Devotional and I totally agree that repentance is a work of faith. What if after repenting you find that there are still some stubborn habits and sins that refuse to leave you. What do you do?

Thank you for this very practical question.

When a person repents of his sins, it means he determines not to go back to them again. But if it happens that there is a besetting sin that easily entangles, the believer needs to wait on the Lord and receive strength to overcome it consistently.

The way to this is looking unto Jesus (see Heb 12:1-2). The psalmist puts it this way: I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken (Psalm 16:8).

What weights (and the sin that easily entangles) try to do is to shake you, but walking in the Spirit is the way to put to death the works of the flesh (Roms 8:13, Gal 5:16). Walk daily in the consciousness of the Lord’s presence within you.

People pray and fast and apply much force when they perceive that there is a demonic assault against them, but they should devote much more spiritual energy to overcome sin. They should labor to enter into God’s rest, a place where they no longer struggle with the flesh. (Read Matt 6:33, Matt 11:12).

Go into today remembering that Seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness (not yours) means seeking to enter the place of rest where you no longer struggle with the flesh because grace has taken over your life. Here it becomes easier for you to walk in the spirit than to walk in the flesh.
