Be Still and Know
Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10 NASU
“My Child, I Am bringing you into a place of rest in Me. You shall see the power that comes from the posture of rest. Cease from your striving. Be still! Rest! Just as you have come to honor Me with your worship, now learn to honor Me in your rest. Now is the season that you must train your soul to rest. Disregard that which is not essential and learn the simplicity that comes from life in Me (2 Corinthians 11:3).
The measure of your level of trust in Me is the degree to which you are able to rest in Me. When you completely trust Me, all there is to do is fall into My arms, lay your head on My breast and rest for you know that you are “home.” Trust that as you rest, I Am living My life through you.
You, My Child, make life in Me more complicated than it really is. It’s not that hard. Really! Believe and open yourself to receive the manifestation of all the desires which I have placed in your heart. Before the fall, do you think Adam struggled to hear the sound of My voice walking in the Garden? Did he struggle to find Me? Did he struggle in tending the garden? No. I came to him and he received Me. His life began in rest. Struggle is a result of the fall. It comes from the mindset that believes you must do something in your own effort and strength before I will come to you, before I will move.
Rest! That is all I desire of you now. Operate from a place of rest. Pray from that place of rest. Worship from that place of rest. Work from that place of rest. Minister from that place of rest. Fight the good fight of faith from that place of rest. War, heal, deliver from that place of rest in Me.
“There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His. Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest …” (Hebrews 4:9-11a)
This is your season of rest. Rest, My Child, rest in Me!”
