God’s will for us is to have a rested life. And the first step to resting, is receiving from Him constantly. In Matthew 6:31-34 Jesus advises us to ‘seek first the kingdom’ and then all other needs will be met. His kingdom is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit (Romans 14:17). Feed on Jesus and make sure that every day your inside is flowing with righteousness, peace and joy. Now you can be productive out of His rest. As we see Jesus Christ in Scripture we gain understanding that leads to a fruitful life. Embracing the New Covenant truths that He made available to us through the Cross, gives us victory in any circumstance or difficulty that comes our way. We can arise and shine because His glory is in us.
