Wisdom For The Day Devotional 21 June 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – How To Enter Into Rest
TOPIC: How To Enter Into Rest (TREM Devotional 21 June 2022)
“For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world”. Hebrews 4:3 KJV
Notice that the scripture says: “…we which have believed…” That is how to enter into rest. When you believe what was spoken over your life, then you will enter into rest. It is important, therefore that you believe what God said as you read His word. Believe that what God said is true. Then you will enter into rest.
You cannot receive manifestation when you are agitated when you are anxious when you are in doubt when you are stressed up and you are wondering whether it will happen or not. Anytime you see yourself stressed or anxious about anything, know that you are not resting in that area.
Our labour is not to get. Our labour is not to struggle to make it happen and it is not to depend on our self-effort. Our labour is to enter into rest. Why? Because Jesus Christ said it is finished. He paid the price that is needed for mankind to begin to enjoy the fullness of God. It is finished! That is where we are supposed to start from. Everything that will make life comfortable for you here on earth before we go into eternity is already done.
Your healing is already finished! Your prosperity is already finished! Your job, your promotion, and the increase are already finished. It is already concluded. It has been paid for, sealed, and packaged. Jesus has done it all. The greatest level of faith is a faith of resting. That is the faith that says it is done.
God does not want you to be anxious for anything because the price has already been paid. We are not called to work to be healed or work to be blessed? Jesus has already finished every work required. So the only labour you are required to do is to rest. What does it mean? It means to put absolute and complete trust in that which has been done.
John 19:30, Hebrews 4:1-16
