The Rested Heart | October 4, 2017
This weekend we were reminded of the various realms of rest that the Lord desires for us to enter into. Today, I want to highlight the "rested heart." Most of us have some kind of STRESS in our lives. Some are regular life stress and some may be stress brought on by circumstances that are outside of our control. Learning the spiritual discipline of rest in these times is a key to both a healthy emotional life and a growing spiritual life. Let me explain.
In peace I will both lie down and sleep,
For You alone, O Lord, make me to dwell in safety.
Psalms 4:8 (NASB)
The Rested Spirit | October 5, 2017
One of the marks of maturity for disciples is a peace that surpasses understanding. While the world is being thrust into further fear, the Christian stands on the rock of Christ and His word and calmly follows through the tumultuous events and seasons of life. We have an opportunity to truly show the terrorized world what the Kingdom is about as we walk in peace in these last days.
Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.
John 14:27 (NASB)
