The Rest of Faith (1 of 4) "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down."
Psalms is full of David's battle to find that resting place. In fact he had many difficulties, pressures setbacks, obstacles - all kinds of challenges, but he said “I'm never lacking, because God is my provider and my source”.
He came to rest inside, in God. The kingdom of God is about rest, not works.
“He that has entered into rest has ceased from his own works.”
The Rest of Faith (2 of 4) Jesus said: If you're stressed out, come to Me. The answer is a person, your connection with a person, connecting with Him and learning.
Technology doesn't solve problems, because the problems we really face, the core of them, are found in the heart; and in our walk with God.
The reason He can teach you how to do life, is because He has an attitude of meekness, humility; and He gave an example of how to do life.
The Rest of Faith (3 of 4) Stress and pressure are part of our life, and Jesus has given some clear things about how we can deal with it.
When you're stressed out, anxious and uptight you don't live your best; you struggle in your relationships; there's overflow in your health.
God doesn't intend us to live that way. Let's have a look what Jesus said…
The Rest of Faith (4 of 4) "My presence will go with you, and I will give you Rest"
Rest is a peace in our heart, in spite of the turmoil around us. We're live in an age which is in turmoil; people are anxious & fearful - stressed out.
Rest is a gift to us. It's an experience you can come into, when no matter what's going on around you, you can still be at peace in your heart.
This is something God gives to us. It comes out of His presence being with us; and out of learning how to let go issues to Him. We're called to bring peace into wherever we go.
