Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, bids us to come unto the Lord and rest…and to remain in that rest. Quoting directly from the message: “Rest knows no fear. Rest knows no want. Rest is strong, sure.”
That tells me that when fear assails me, I must fight it. When I feel lack of any kind, I must fight it. I’m talking about lack within. Lack of energy, lack of desire, lack of gratitude, etc. Fear and lack go hand in hand. “Rest is strong, sure.” That means that I keep on keeping on, regardless of what it looks like, what someone says about it, what the general consensus may be, etc. I stand on the Word of God.
No, we’re not to just go along lackidaisically. But we don’t need to be immobilized by fear of anything. We can be sure that God will provide, protect, lead, and guide us, etc. We are to walk in that faith, not changing banners, but holding fast to the promises of God. We are not moved, or motivated by fear. We are held up, made strong, equipped by in the Word of God, and our faith in it. The more readily we attack and fight fear and inner lack, the stronger faith becomes, and the more powerful the soul rest is.
