Did you know obedience to the voice and Word of God is what ushers you into rest? It’s not a do nothing, sit on the beach so your body can rest. Obedience to God rewards you with rest for your soul. Obedience is the manifestation of trust and trust in God brings your soul into rest. A soul at rest does not worry, fear, strive, perform, panic, a soul at rest is a soul that is free from noise. A soul at rest is internal silence. When we resist obedience we are resisting rest for our soul. The Sabbath is a day to rest your physical body from work, the Sabbath rest spoken of in Hebrews 4 is a soul that is silent and this only comes from consistent obedience to the voice and Word of God.
Psalm 62:1, 5-6 “My soul waits in silence for God only; From Him is my salvation. … My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him.
He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be shaken.”
