1 God’s promise of entering his rest still stands, so we ought to tremble with fear that some of you might fail to experience it. 2 For this good news—that God has prepared this rest—has been announced to us just as it was to them. But it did them no good because they didn’t share the faith of those who listened to God.
3 For only we who believe can enter his rest. As for the others, God said,
“In my anger I took an oath:
‘They will never enter my place of rest,’”
even though this rest has been ready since he made the world.
Hebrews 4 : 1 – 3
New Living Translation.
The visa for entering into any promise of God is “believe\faith”! Without believe in God and His ability to bring to pass all that He said, we will be going in cycles without making any headway.
Unbelieve will turn a journey of forty days into forty years. As we can see the perfect example in the scriptures regarding the Israelis.
The carcasses of those that did not believe were littered in the desert! Unbelieve cuts short destiny. Its easier believing brother and sisters. Unbelieve robs you and I of profiting and robs us of fulfilment.
The circumstance can look bleak but as long as God says this, hold on to it. Fear, doubt and pride are the enemies eating into our faith. Don’t give them an iota of space in your life. They have a way of robbing us of all that God wants and desires for us.
The thing to fear is your fear, the thing to doubt is your doubt and its high time you strengthened your faith by feeding your faith and killing your doubt and fear. Speak His word whether it is convenient or not. Stick to God and act on His words and you will begin to see result.
When we walk in faith , things that seemingly would have weigh us down is laid at the feet of the Lord. That is when the rest promised in the scripture will began to radiate from our heart to all areas of our lives. Let go of your fear, doubt and unbelieve and embrace active faith in His word and you will see peace that will flood your soul.
