Rest is a weapon. Let me read you a Scripture you are very, very familiar with. It’s one of my own favorites that I have lived in for a long time. It’s found in Matthew 11:28. Jesus stood up and said,
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
It is really important that we experience the rest of partnership with God. You are invited into a life without fear, without anxiety, without worry, without panic. You are invited into a life where you never need to react to something because your life is geared to responding to Someone.
