An Apostolic and Prophetic Devotional for Reformers: Day 7

Day 7: Genesis 2:2, says, “And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.” NOW it’s time to rest in the Presence of God! As you press into the GLORY OF GOD, He has marked you, because you MARKED His word! Jeremiah 23:18, says, “For who hath stood in the counsel of the Lord, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it?” The word “counsel” means you’ve been in the secret place with God! You have seen and heard his voice! You have entered into REST when you hear from God, because you have ceased from your ideas, and your own opinions, because God has downloaded INTO you the MIND OF CHRIST! EVERY TIME I’M IN YOUR PRESENCE LORD, I NEED YOUR MIND JESUS!!!!!!! GOD SAYS REST IN MY GRACE!!! THIS IS THE PLACE OF MY REST!!! The Sabbath has always been about walking in Grace. In the Old Covenant you must not work on the Sabbath or you would be cut off because it was witnessing to us of the true Sabbath, which is the GRACE of God! Why is Grace the true Sabbath? Because when you are under Grace you must not work FOR your salvation, but trust in the FINISHED work of Christ for your salvation. Because if you work for your salvation through the law you will never enter into rest (grace), you will be cut off from God.

Prayer: Father we thank you for Grace! We thank you for causing us to rest in Christ! We thank you for the finished work on Calvary! We love you forever! We thank you for the Holy Spirit who brought this refreshing rest in our lives by Christ Jesus! In Jesus name, Amen!
