Living In God’s Rest
Luke 10: 38-42: Tells us about the situation between Jesus and Martha. Jesus and his entourage had been invited to Martha and Mary's house. Martha at once went about preparing a meal and serving her guest. As the day went on, she became extremely flustered at having to do everything herself, she eventually exploded to Jesus, why? Because her sister Mary chose to sit at Jesus' feet and listen to The Word, instead of helping with the preparations.
Has this happened to you? I bet it has, when you get so busy, trying to make ends meet, trying to get things done until eventually, we blame God when it seems nothing is working. But notice Jesus never said, "Oops, sorry Martha, I will deal with it right away." He at once points out to her (see vs. 41) that she is "worried and troubled" with many things but that Mary has chosen the right way. Which way is that? To be in the presence of the Lord and His Word.
The Word of God has the answers to every situation in life. If you need healing, do not worry and stress about it, get into the Word, find the answers there. (1 Peter 2:24) If you need finances, get in the Word, find the answers there. (Philippians 4:19) Instead of speaking the problem speak the Word. "My God shall supply all my need according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus".
When we do life God’s way, we enter His rest. (Hebrews 3:3). Doing it His way guarantees results. As Jesus said, "Mary has chosen the RIGHT way".
Your activity is not the solution to a problem, the solution is standing on God’s Word and resting in it.
