The LORD gave them rest on every side. Joshua 21:44
If you remain in Me, and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from Me, you can do nothing.
Rest on every side. Can you imagine it? Tranquility. No anxiety. No fear. Calm. Quiet. Undisturbed. All a gift from God.
Me? I want to try harder, work more, all in hopes of peace.
Jesus says, "Lean into Me. Rely on Me. You can't do a blooming thing. In fact, unless I'm right there in the middle of it, you can do nothing."
So, unless I'm plugged in to Jesus, like a light into the outlet, I can try as hard as I want, but nothing will happen. Nada. No light. No electricity.
For us performers, that's a hard concept to grasp. Doing Zip equals great gain. Simply leaning, relying on Jesus, gives rest. Power. Even fruit.
I like that.
Besides, He says He gives rest on Every side. Every area of my life. I'm ready for that! Aren't you?
