REST - meditaton on Hebrews 4:11-16

REST is not inactivity. REST is not doing nothing. To REST is to:
- Renew my mind;
- Expect good;
- Step out boldly; and
- Take stock of the blessings in my life

I enter into God's REST (Heb 4:11) when I:

Renew my mind with the Word of Christ (Heb 4:12);

Expect good to happen to me and through me, seeing that Jesus my High Priest sympathizes with (rather than condemns) my weaknesses (Heb 4:15);

Step out boldly before the throne of grace and take on life's challenges as enbolden by the Holy Spirit (Heb 4:16); and

Take stock of all the blessings of mercy and grace from my Abba Father, even as He is helping me in the midst of my most urgent and deepest needs (Heb 4:16).
