Your inheritance is always made available to you, and rest gives you the capacity to see beyond what is in front of you to see the thing that is behind it. Rest allows you to see the provision of God through the problem that is present. Rest knows that, “If there’s a problem here, there has to be a provision here so, yippee, let’s go find the provision!” Rest gives you an assurance that God is not only present, He is actually working. So a person in rest has the confidence to inherit, always. Rest is always a renewal. Rest is a part of your renewal. A person not living in rest will always need some ministry to get refreshing. A person living in rest never needs a refreshing; they carry it with them all the time. We are not adverse to a top-up, but it is not actually a need. Do you understand what I’m saying? We don’t actually let our renewing get to a point of need.
