the mystery of rest

In A World Whereby There Is A lot Of Jostling And Bustling Here And There. Consciously Or Unconsciously, Even Believers Are Caught Up In The Web.

Rest Is The Hall Mark Of Faith. Rest Is Essential For The Miraculous To Flow. Until You Leave The Boxing Ring By Tapping The Hands Of Jesus To Step In, Winning Is Not In View.

When The Storm Came, The Disciples Were Wearing Out Themselves Frantically In A Bid To Save Themselves. But When They Remembered To Invite Jesus (Who Was Sleeping In The Midst Of A Storm) To The Situation, He Stopped The Storm.

You See, I Don’t Care About The Kind Of Storm That You’re Facing Right Now – Whether Stormy Marriage Or Academic Struggle. When You Invite Jesus To Step In And Take Over, Your Storm Will Be Over.

In A Jet Set Age And Restless World, Seeing Into The Realm Of The Spirit Will Always Confer Rest.

A Time Came When The Syrian Army Were Planning A War Against Israel, Anytime They Attempted To Make War Planes, The Secret Would Leak To Prophet Elisha Through Divine Intervention. And This Made Them To Be Frustrated. Then, They Sent An Army To Arrest The Prophet Of God.

Gehazi, The Servant Of the Prophet, Was Almost Paralyzed By Fear – Seeing The Army Of Syria Encamped Them But Elisha Could Not Be Daunted By Their Presence Because He Could See Into The Spirit’s Realm. He Prayed For Gehazi And His Eyes Popped Open. He Too Could See The Host Of Angels Engulfed Them And He Was At Rest.

Seeing Into The Realm Of The Spirit Will Always Confer Rest Anyday.


life is ordinary struggle outside God's factor

The Race Does Not Belong To The Swift Neither Does The Battle Belong To The Strong. God Is The Lifter And Builder Of Men. He Promotes The Humble And Demotes The Proud.

Trying To Lift Your Problem Without God Is Like Trying To Lift A Lorry Without A Jack. Every Natural Happening Has Its Supernatural Antecedent. The Supernatural Is The Backbone Of Life. Life Is Ordinary Toiling Without God.

I Am The Vine, Ye Are The Branches: He That Abideth In Me, And I In Him, The Same Bringeth Forth Much Fruit: For Without Me Ye Can Do Nothing. (John.15:5)

One Encounter With The Truth Is Worth Than Many Years Of Efforts. Embrace The Truth And Live A Fulfilled Life.

    1. Agreed. Peter and others toiled all the night and caught nothing but when they allowed Jesus to stepped into their boat and follow His instruction, they had a net breaking harvest (Luke5:5-6). Thanks for reading and commenting. God bless you🏵🙂

    1. You’re welcome. “Don’t know your profession but i could hear you preaching in my head!” – Lol. I’m actually a technical person but my passion for God is undeniable. Thanks for reading, commenting and following. God bless your heart🌺🙂


  2. What a peaceful post! So many reminders of the strength God has to bring us through the storms of life. Sometimes we are like peter who when he took his eyes off of Jesus began to sink. Stay strong in Him. I really like your website.

    Interesting this idea of Rest or those doing any Resting.

    When really it’s all about the Test and how every single mother’s son and daughter is being tested! And in this modern time far too many are resting or sitting on their “laurels and those of others” believing falsely that because they have impressed others or fit with the man-made world paradigm, especially this cyber-world social media, the make believe world of all these many followers and connections supposed friends, that they have really proved their worth to God! Is this what the human race needed to be, in this modern age with computers, Nukes, Industrial Scale Abortion Full Term; and so many magical concoctions or inventions, in order for souls to be redeemed; or could it be that Satan has most of the human race in his clutches now, and the clear evidence is staring us all in our faces! I say it’s the latter, and truly, the Latter Days; so hopefully more get their minds and hearts right with Jesus very quickly, because time is running out and so many are in a state of self-induced delusion and stupidity!

    This additional commentary may be of interest to some of you, and to whoever it isn’t; all I can say is, God help you before it’s too late! Amen.

          1. Amen Brother in Christ Jesus!
            Thank for doing that! Prayer is the most powerful capability we humans have available to us in dealing with any and all evils, troubles and obstacles! Our time and opportunity is extremely limited and growing shorter by the minute and far too many people are in ruts frittering away their precious pearls of God given opportunity on selfish trivialities and sin!
            “Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, Vanity of vanities! All is vanity” (Ecclesiastes 1:2,
            Romans 8:20 says that all creation was subjected to vanity because of God’s curse. When Adam sinned, God cursed all that He had made (Genesis 3:17–19). In other words, perfection was lost. All of creation is now falling short of its original purpose; rather than working in harmony with God and creation, inhabitants of the earth have turned on each other and against God. We still reel from the effects of that curse. Everything meant to be right side up is upside down. The chaos and insanity of the world as we know it are due to the fact that God has subjected creation to vanity until the time when it will be set free (Romans 8:21).
            God bless your heart also!
            Thank you!

              1. Thank you Brother Chris! I feel that I was given an opportunity by your posting this and explaining your inspiration so well; and God asks that we follow His will doing our best to give honor and praise to Him from our deepest hearts; especially whenever two or three come together in His name.

                Matthew 18:18-20 “18Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. 19Again, I tell you truly that if two of you on the earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by My Father in heaven. 20For where two or three gather together in My name, there am I with them.”

                God bless you and yours!

                Brother in Christ Jesus,
