There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from His. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience. For the Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow, it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to Whom we must give account.
I must learn to rest from the busy-ness of life so I may be quiet enough for You to teach me how to enter into Your rest. Help me get there, because I know it will protect me from falling away from fellowship with You. I need to spend more time in Your Word to keep it living in me; it will adjust my heart’s thoughts and attitudes. My soul is laid bare before You; I know I will have to give an account for all things I leave unresolved, unforgiven between You and me. I pray You keep me obedient and renewed through resting on Your promises.
