“A time of rest before the storm”

Pillar scripture: Matthew 11:28 NLT

“Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”

I just want to pray for everyone feeling burdened and heavy today. Or if you’ve felt burdened or heavy for a bit. You are not alone. God is sending you rest and comfort! I’ve been feeling very burdened and heavy lately as the enemy has been on the attack!! God is pouring out His spirit and breaking hidden chains that He won’t allow into the promised land. So as I’m praying and looking in scripture to read today, the voice of the Lord came over me and I heard:

“A time of rest before the storm”

I give all glory and honor to God as Matthew 11:28 came into my mind immediately after! Resting is also being obedient! That’s been my hang up as God has been telling me to rest for a bit now. God may be telling you to rest too.

As I was looking up the meaning in the Bible for rest, I found on where they explained 3 kinds of rest in God.

  1. Rest from physical labor. “And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done” (Genesis 2:7).

  2. Rest from fear, worry, and anxiety.  “Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him.” (Psalms 37:7) or “Do not be anxious about anything . . .” (Philippians 4:6)

  3. Rest in your salvation. “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)

God is bringing us to rest before the storm! It’s heavy on my spirit that it’s connected to fighting our way into the Promised Land! A storm is coming saints of God! And the enemy wants us tired and stressed out and sick before we see it coming and be defeated! Seek God and His rest, how ever He leads you to REST!

I agree. The storm is to test what we've learned in the wilderness.
