Believing Is Resting
As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. — PSALM 18:30
The Word of God is perfect, and it can meet every crisis of our lives. It holds the answer to every problem or need of our lives. If we trust that Word with all of our hearts, a quietness, or a rest, comes into our spirits.
Hebrews 4:3 says, “For we which have believed do enter into rest. . . .” Believing is knowing that God’s Word is true and can be depended upon. We know that the Word of God is true. Philippians 4:19 says, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” So we know in our spirits that every need will be supplied. We don’t have to worry or have anxiety. If we are worrying or anxious, then we’re not believing.
Smith Wigglesworth said, “If what some people claim to be believing doesn’t happen overnight, they’re ready to give up on it. That proves that they never did believe God to begin with. If you’re really believing God, you’ll trust Him until the end. And sometimes God will permit you to be tempted, or tested, right up to the hilt.”
Confession: The Word of God meets every need and every crisis of my life. And as I trust the Word, there is a rest on the inside of me, in my spirit man. I know that according to the Word of God, I’m healed. So I rest in that fact.
