Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it.
Hebrews 4:1 (NASB)
Entering His rest. It hit me this week that it means listening to His voice. Following His will. Leaving my plans behind and following His. When I make my plans, plot out my life, that is when things do not work out. I am just not that good at figuring out the future.
After a few weeks of struggling within my own mind, I finally listened to His. And with it comes His rest, and the peace of mind of knowing that I am on the right path. Not that things are easier, just calmer and clearer to me. Life is still messy, but somehow I am cleaner, less clutter.
How long will this feeling last? I know the timing exactly. It will last until I start planning things on my own again and stop listening to His voice and staying in His rest.
