Today, God’s word for you is rest. Rest in the faith He gives you. Rest in the faith Jesus provides. So often the busyness and stresses of life squeeze out our ability to simply be with God and trust Him to work things out for our good. His heart is for us to rest, and not only rest, but rest in Him.
Hebrews Chapter 4 is God’s gift to us in the faith-wearied moments. I often read the words and promises in that chapter over myself, family, or friends as a blessing and prayer. I’m sharing the prayer with you, so you too can partner with the truth heaven already is proclaiming over us all.
Take the following blessing inspired by the the scriptures in Hebrews Chapter 4 and speak the life-giving truth out loud. Speak it out loud so your heart can hear and agree. Speak it out loud so God can put His amen to His own words and ideas. Speak it out loud so the atmosphere around you changes from hopeless to hope and from overwhelmed to calmed assurance.
A Hebrews 4 Speak Life Blessing
Embrace the fullness…
I bless (insert the name of the person or people you are blessing) spirit and soul to embrace the fullness of God’s promise for a life here on earth of resting in a realm of confident faith. I bless you to experience the full measure of faith given to you by Christ in your waking, sleeping, coming, going, and breathing in and out life.
I bless you to join the faith God’s gifted you with to the Word of God and activate its power completely. Surrender your will and allow yourself to be affected deeply by the Truth, not giving way to doubt. I bless your body, mind, will, and emotions to believe as your spirit believes.
May you enter into your God ordained today with an open, soft, malleable heart. May your ears be ever ready to hear God’s voice and obey. Let yourself respond to God’s gentle hand drawing you in close and directing your steps.
Live in the unveiled presence…
I bless you to connect to the full energy and piercing active love of the Living Word of God. Grant the all effective words of God to walk you through His cleansing fire and lead you to eat from the tree of life, Jesus Christ. As you enter into this Holy of Holies place through Jesus, rest and remain. Build your life in the unveiled presence of God.
Welcome Jesus to become for you the Reinforcing One. Just as a ship sometimes requires stronger reinforcement in a storm, Jesus will secure you in times of tribulation and temptation. Give Him full permission and access.
Allow the knowledge that Jesus sympathizes with our frailty and humanity to wash over you. He too understands, for He is both man and God, but as our high priest, He conquered sin. Trust that He is committed to helping us let go of the places we rely too heavily on our own abilities.
Come boldly to where love is enthroned…
Through out your day, feel God’s constant pull to draw you nearer still. Open your ears and tune into His call to come close. Go boldly. Go freely. Go, and let nothing get in the way.
Go to where love is enthroned. Remain. Move in. Take up residency in God’s home for you. Receive Mercy’s kiss, in every moment of your day and with every waking breath.
Trust and see the God who reveals the motives of your heart, not to shame you, but to call you up into eternal things of His Kingdom. Walk into your identity and destiny in Christ today. Rest in the assurance of who you are and all God believes about you. Settle your heart in the Everlasting King who never withholds His love towards you.
