Faith's Real Rest

There are 3 powerful words that describe the condition of the believer who is taking advantage of his privileges in Christ Jesus--rest, peace, and joy. These three words are the fruit of full grown faith. "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid (John 14:27). This peace didn't belong to the Jews under the first covenant. The only peace they new would be a national peace, but with the New Creation, it is a peace of the heart, a peace of mind, a peace in his physical body. Sickness is called disease, broken peace, broken rest, broken joy.

Isaiah 26:3 is a prophecy of the church, "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee because he trusteth in thee".

May I trust in Him through the storms of life as well as in times of relative stability.

It's never more true than when we realize we're no longer enemies of God. We are at peace in Christ!
