Comfortable Vs. Rest

There is a huge difference between the two: Comfort and Rest.   Rest is a decision.  We have to decide to rest, even through we are at times uncomfortable.  God often brings us through discomfort.  The Bible says, "No discipline seems pleasant at the time..." But in fact, it is uncomfortable.  And the Bible says, "At the end [in the result of this discipline and discomfort] it produces a harvest of righteous of peace [and rest]."  Ironically, it is not comfort that brings rest;  It is our trust in God that brings us rest.  God who guides us gives us peace to know that God brings us our daily rest. God's grace brings rest. :) Obedience brings rest.  God's guidance brings us success.

Rather than seeking comfort, seek out God's peace.  You may get more busy; that means get more Word in you, God's Words of life.  Unashamedly say:

Psalm 37:4,5
"I delight myself in the Lord" "I commit my way to Him"

Proverbs 3:5
"I trust in the Lord with all my heart"

Philippians 4:13
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

Galatians 2:20
"I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."

Jesus said,

"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."


If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
